Election Day Thread: Kentucky, Mississippi, Virginia, New Jersey

A rundown on the seats at stake at 538.com.

Here are the Virginia results. Republicans have a two seat advantage in both the House and Senate. Democrats could well win both outright, giving Democrats total control of the state.

Here are the Kentucky results. Tom Bevan's governorship is at stake.

Here are the results in Mississippi, where the Republican governor Reeve is up for reelection.

That was a big surprise I never expected, that so many people would vote for strong right wing Conservative Abbott for Governor, and vote for Beto on the same ticket.

We really need good people in any elected position. If only to stop the damage.

I urge every moron to think of running. Even the thankless positions need competence. And I trust any of the Horde to go a good job more than others.

I ran, and won my first election by 56 votes. I have made a difference, a bit, and have lowered my own taxes twice. Now, the most important thing for me is to find the next person, to take over from me.

89 I don't know Kentucky like I know Florida, but usually most results have early Dem leads from urban reporting, then GOP rural areas report to close the gap. There are also hold out Dem precincts that report late because of "lines are so long that they had to stay open late".

No idea if that is going on in Louisville and Lexington or not.

So if it is close like I see mentioned above, Bevin probably wins. Unless there is a huge outstanding Dem stronghold that hasn't reported.

So that is the key right now. Western KY will report late, how much of that 1/3rd left of Louisville is Dem strongholds.

Despite what is being said "about" the results, the actual result of the election depends on what is still outstanding. It is 50/50 right now. Which precincts are still on the map.

If this was FL, NC, PA, or VA I could probably hazard a guess, but I know nothing about KY other than running from Louisville to Lexington two weeks ago.

185 Honestly, I don't buy that LL is a troll. But he places WAY too much stock in any news source or poll that feeds into gloomy outlook.


This happens a lot around here. People get vested. Others snark back, the OP digs in.

Most of the posters who hit the wall in 2016 started that way. Soon they're fighting the previous argument and hurt feelings over and over again and the whole thing snowballs.

186 If I had time and a wealthy backer who wanted to just have some fun, I'd run for office. It would be a fucking hoot. I wouldn't win anything, but good Lord, would I ever have a blast on the way to the loss, dragging Uniparty douchebags across the boards, and also profaning their matrilineal heritage. I'd probably also make a campaign ad where Triumph the Dog poops on Jared Polis.

188 Off year gubernatorial races really do not mean that much in predicting future results as governor's races are pretty idiosyncratic, more so even than presidential elections because candidate qualities and internal party issues in a state result in more variance.

Often in a state dominated by the other party, the only way to change direction is to elect a governor from the other party. See Mass for example with Charlie Baker despite being Dem in every other office practically. California was another. In red states, you get places like Wyoming or Alaska getting tired of the Rep. machine and voting in Dems or Indeps.

Currently,
Andy Beshear
Democrat
610,883 50.3%
Matt Bevin*
Republican
580,516 47.8
John Hicks
Libertarian
23,846 2.0
1,215,245 votes, 83% reporting (3,052 of 3,659 precincts)

Fayette and most of Jefferson is in now. But Bevin will pretty much have to sweep the rest of the precincts which appear to be rural but not a lot of votes by high 60-70 percent to have a chance.

Also not sure about absentee and military ballots.

See, I don't think you're a troll, based on my very limited experience. But this is why people aren't happy with you. You've gone from crapping in the punchbowl, to "told ya so" mode, to self-martyrdom in the course of two hours. It comes across as you being more concerned with proving yourself right than with trying to lift Morons' spirits.

You could be talking up the fact that other KY GOPers are having a great night, or noting that Bevin seems pretty unpopular personally, and that this had a lot to do with local politics. But instead you're acting....a lot like a concern troll, honestly. Not saying you are, but that's how you're acting.

And don't say you're just responding to others' criticisms. Yeah, you got snapped at a bit early on, but now you're refusing to let it go, which isn't helping anyone.

Unfortunately, as Jinx pointed out earlier, the GOP majorities in the state house as of today are so narrow that it will only take one seat to flip the state senate and two to flip to the state house, which would mean two years of a Dem legislature along with a Dem governor.

272 232. Bevin got cross wise with the Teachers union and probably did not get much help from his erstwhile Senator McConnell who has a powerbase in Jefferson County.

From looking at the map, a lot of Appalachian counties voted for Beshears who is the son of a popular ex governor possibly because of coal industry troubles with a major coal company going bankrupt and not paying workers.

All in all, a reminder that state politics are decoupled somewhat from national at the gubernatorial race level. Key is looking at down ballot races where the Republicans have about 55 percent in statewide races as these are usually more party voting offices. The SOS race was interesting but it appears that the Repubs are probably going to win that office with it being ahead with most Demo leaning votes counted. Western KY is more Republican.

Posted by: whig at November 05, 2019 08:34 PM (MItID)

273 >>>The Dem trollbots will tell you that states ALWAYS vote the way they go for governor, ignoring the GOP dominance down ballot.


Exactly, because that's exactly what Missouri did in '08 and '12, when...oh, right.

Anyway, people were noting Bevin's problems before the results came in, so I don't see why this is getting dismissed as "excuses."

I would like to know why Bevin still lost when a number of counties were voting for him by heavier margins than in '15, though.

351 That election I mentioned, where they called it while we were still voting? We voted Perot. That's the reason Perot got as many votes as he did.

That is why some website can publish whatever vote count they want, but it is not the official count. Which is something this idiot troll does not seem to understand. He is looking at unofficial results, based on who knows what.

Posted by: notsothoreau at November 05, 2019 08:45 PM (JKNZq)

352 My personal take is that Bevin lost enough teacher influenced votes in counties to lose the race assuming that he did--teachers, spouses, families, etc. as he is running behind other GOP candidates so that he is getting about 5-8 percent less in Southern and Western KY rural counties that the generic candidate. He is currently losing by about 17000 votes with about 350 precincts in mostly Republican areas left to report. My guess it that it is too much to overcome.

The MS race is a similar situation where a popular Dem candidate is running in a state where the Republicans have been in the governor's office for multiple terms with a weak Rep. candidate. Don't really know the dynamics of the race there at all.

360 Unfortunately, as Jinx pointed out earlier, the GOP
majorities in the state house as of today are so narrow that it will
only take one seat to flip the state senate and two to flip to the state
house, which would mean two years of a Dem legislature along with a Dem
governor.


Posted by: Vendette at November 05, 2019 08:33 PM (Yeuu4)

And so VA will likely flip. State senate may stay, but house likely flip by my crystal ball. Dems flooded a lot of money into these races, and who knows how many zombies, dogs, and unfraternal twins voted, too, to make it happen. I mean, we've caught them at it before. Annoys me to see it, though.

Posted by: unwenchable at November 05, 2019 08:46 PM (jqCfy)

366 A lot of the (D) base tends to view state and local elections through a national movement perspective -- they believe they are "fighting evil."

The (R) base tends not to do this. (R) politicians have not made that case as loudly and consistently as the (D) ones have.

Also, I don't think that VA and CO are purple states anymore; I think they are blue. On the plus side, I don't think that MI or MN are blue states anymore; I think they are purple.

431 Well - every single republican in Kentucky absolutely rolled the Dems - except Blevin - politics is all local I guess - for whatever reason, the KY people hated Blevin and loved all the other republicans - every one, as it turns out - Blevin is the only one that's down with by over 1% with 7% of the precincts left.

He'll need 20K votes - and he ain't going to get it. Politics is weird - not haw haw! easy to predict like lurking lurker says - you see, he just takes the contrarian view and laughs in everyone's faces - unless he loses - then he'll disappear. Until the next poll or election. But all the Republicans won except the governor in what is probably a referendum on him for KY reasons and nothing LL wants to tell you...

508 Accordingly, Bevin is one of the most unpopular governors in the country. Even his own party is lukewarm toward him -- earlier this year, Bevin only won 52 percent of the Republican primary vote. However, President Trump's net approval rating in the state remains relatively high, so connecting himself to the president could pay off. Trump even held a rally for Bevin the night before the election in Lexington. Beshear, the son of popular former Gov. Steve Beshear, has tried to make his candidacy a referendum on the incumbent by going after Bevin's efforts to add work requirements to Medicaid and criticizing his attempts to cut education spending.

Ah. I hate to say it, as KY is my birth state and I have family there... But it's one of the most welfare dependent rural places in the country.

Posted by: Lurking Lurker - Not In My Purview at November 05, 2019 09:03 PM (FiUMj)

The Democrats focused all their money on one race in the state. Democrats have also won state wide elections there before, like in West Virginia. They cannot focus their money in one state and on one race in 2020. Once again you will either have Bob Dole II as the Democrat nominee or you will have a person who threatens the bank roll of every liberal billionaire in America.

Either way it is a win-win in a binary match up against Trump.

As I said above, he did the right thing with the teachers and their union trying to fix the pension crisis that Beshear's father created during his governorship.. tough position that he felt he had to do but he blasted them on the airwaves calling them stupid and such and they and their relatives and families didn't forget,

They didn't vote for Beshear but they didn't vote for Bevin either...

Thus even though Orange Man bad stumped for him as did Pence it simply wasn't enough..

The most interesting thing was how just enough precincts were kept out in Jefferson and Warren counties until it appeared there wouldn't be monkey business required. That's the only thing that gives me pause about Trump winning 2020, the potential for fraud.

No, that's not how Massachusetts works. The Supreme General Court (that's the legislature, I'm just proving my MA bona fides) is always 90% Dem, and the Speaker of the House has more constitutional power than the Governor.

But even Massholes know that they need a grownup so they usually elect a Republicanish Governor to tut tut over things.

People mentioned CAC earlier up top. I think his white whale, Pennsylvania, being reclaimed for the GOP by Trump of all people broke him a little. But I still really like him, despite the nevertrumpening. Hope he and his cute wife and kiddo are doing well. He was nerdy in some really fun ways.

722 Link at Insty's...

KENTUCKY: Matt Bevin's Gubernatorial Loss Has Nothing to do With President Trump. "In Kentucky, Governor Matt Bevin lost to a Democrat. No Republican Governor of Kentucky has ever won re-election. Democrats have rushed to make this about Bevin, but consider Bevin was at 30% approval and, after Trump's visit, got within striking distance of victory tonight. This really was not about Trump. Kentucky Republicans swept all the other statewide races. Kentucky elected its first black Attorney General, who also happens to be Kentucky's first Republican Attorney General since 1948."

And an interaction between two Insty commenters:

geek49203 . 12 minutes ago
KY guy here. 1. Bevin won 4 years ago cause his opponent ran on the wonders of ObamaCare. Bevin was weak then, and was quite the surprise when he won. 2. Bevin has done so good things, but no one likes the smell of infected corrupted abscesses when they are lanced. It's been quite contentious for 4 years. 3. Bevin himself doesn't exactly have a winning personality that jumps through the TV. That's a real problem, and quite frankly, the main campaign tool of the Dems was that he was easy to hate. 4. Americans always vote for the better looking candidate. That is true here too

css123 replying to geek49203 . 2 minutes ago
It doesn't help that he pissed of most of the teachers in the state. Throw in a spoiler Libertarian candidate for those that despise Bevin and Beshear equally (that I think based on county breakdowns would have likely split enough for Bevin from those that would have voted without the L on the ballot), you have this result.

Now to be fair, there's still some outstanding votes to be tallied (enough to push Bevin over if luck suddenly breaks his way), but this isn't a huge win for the dems with the GOP taking every single other partisan race on the ballot today (both statewide and special election general assembly seats). Cameron will do to Beshear what he did to Bevin (and considering the corruption in Beshears family tree, his dad was the previous gov before Bevin) it's probably not going to be pretty. Adams will likely make some improvements to the SOS office, though he's GOPe in the McConnell camp. The GOP retains majorities in both chambers of the state house. Beshear isn't getting anything done.

Posted by: dagny at November 05, 2019 09:38 PM (nRWPy)

George W. was just as much of a dogshit candidate as Romney and McCain yet he still won twice. The country has changed since then. It's no longer a center-right country, it's a center-left country.

If it weren't for the electoral college Republicans would have lost six of the last seven Presidential elections. Every Republican Presidential candidate faces an uphill battle for two reasons:

1. Immigration. You can't import a million new Democrats every year and expect to keep being competitive in elections.

2. Slippery Slope social issues. The Establishment waved the white flag on too many issues like gay marriage. This allowed leftism to adopt a facade of normalcy in the minds of the voters. Once you can be convinced that Adam and Steve can marry, it's a lot easier to convince you of the benefits of drag queen story hour, and from there suddenly Joe Biden doesn't seem so radical after all.

769 7000 vote margin with 100% counted. That's pretty razor thin, and Republicans obliterated their opponents in every other race. I assume there will be a recount, but we are novices at cheating so it probably won't go our way.

770 753 41 Some good level-headed analysis of KY race at the Treehouse. I didn't realize Bevin's approval rating was that bad. And race is still so close will probably mean recount.

then why wasn't he primaried?

I am soooo glad that our voters are so principled that they'll stay home. I guess in new america, the GOP just has to be in the mood.

Someone earlier said he only won the primary with 52%. So plenty of Republicans did try to get him out, just not enough, and I'm guessing that 48% split between a couple different candidates.

775 1. Immigration. You can't import a million new Democrats every year and expect to keep being competitive in elections.

2. Slippery Slope social issues. The Establishment waved the white flag on too many issues like gay marriage. This allowed leftism to adopt a facade of normalcy in the minds of the voters. Once you can be convinced that Adam and Steve can marry, it's a lot easier to convince you of the benefits of drag queen story hour, and from there suddenly Joe Biden doesn't seem so radical after all.

777 I didn't know Butch Otter was in the Cowboy Hall of Fame. You learn something new every day!

Part of his stump spiel. He attributes his political career in Idaho to hard work, dedication, and marrying the daughter of the richest man in Idaho (JR Simplot). (They divorced before he was elected governor, however.)

I heard that when he was governor, he had a literal open-door policy - you could just walk up to his office in the state capitol and stick your head in. Butch did note that he was carrying, however.

They killed off Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Mary Poppinsed Leia, essentially squandering the last chance at reuniting the original cast and giving them a proper sendoff while simultaneously not creating a compelling and rich story or introducing interesting new characters to carry the franchise forward to a new generation.

How can you not have all of the characters in at least one scene together?

It boggles the mind that you could buy a franchise and IP for 4.5 billion and have no coherent story arc in place before you start making films?

They literally have just winged it.

Incredible.

I have no faith in libertarians anymore. In my experience, for most "libertarians" the label is simply shorthand for "I like weed." The modern libertarian is more likely to vote Dem than Republican anyway. If there wasn't a libertarian candidate on the ballot I'd be willing to bet Bevin's loss would be even bigger.

808 Besides giving the Democrats a talking point, albeit a lame one, the Bevin loss is significant for a much worse reason: it means the teachers unions continue to wield actual power.

816 I have been reading this blog since the mid-2000's nearly every day. Only recently have I started posting, and I don't yet know a lot of folks.

One thing I have definitely observed is that Lurking Lurker does not like President Trump and is clearly fixated on a desire to see him fail. It is also clear that he wishes to demoralize those who would see President Trump succeed.

In sum: it is kind of self-evident what he has been doing here--quite successfully--for a number of months; regardless of what moniker you assign it.

LOL! That was me around 7:30 pm on election night in 2016. My husband told me he still thought PT would win. And, sure enough a couple hours later he was right.

864 Lock Him Up gets to gloat.

If the GOP had beaten an incumbent Dem Gov in a deep blue state, there would have been justified gloating.

And everyone here would have heralded that as a precursor to next year's Pres election.

Suck it racists.

869 A vote for Warren is a vote of cabbage flavored water and sawdust crab cakes. But mostly the sawdust crab cakes.

If you've never heard of him before tonight, you aren't paying attention to politics and have no clue how important this is for momentum going into next year.

Trump is basically useless now. His only chance is to draw the crappiest opponent

Bevins is much closer.

878 879...

WTF are you taking about?!? Bevin had a 30% approval rating going into this election and barely the race. And if Libertarian candidate wasn't in the race, he would've pulled it out. Note that the electorate overwhelmingly supported the Republican candidate running for Attorney General.

If Trump can make a Republican stand up for himself, he can do anything.

883 I honestly can't conceive of this stuff we are seeing now as trolling. I don't want to encourage it on humorous grounds, but . . . . it's so incredibly stupid that it's funny in a bizarre kind of way!

Do they get paid or is it pro bono?

Posted by: DC at November 05, 2019 10:24 PM (/TvO8)

884 "887 But he isn't conceding!

If Trump can make a Republican stand up for himself, he can do anything."

The AP has reversed its call for Beshear. No need for false hope but this may be one where a recount does change the result. More than a lame talking point for the Democrats, it would be nice if the teachers union somehow came up short.

What has my attention is Virginia and how the GOPe screwed the pooch by micromanaging the state party from inside the Beltway. It's the Southern counterpart to Colorado, and perhaps even more lost.

885 I think I can speak for all trolls -- certainly for myself, probably for "Lock Him Up" -- when I say how much we appreciate your engagement. We live for this, and I mean that pretty much literally.

You see, I know that if I got everything I hope and agitate for -- Trump forcibly removed from the White House in disgrace -- that nothing would change for me. I have no power. I have no influence aside from getting one of you right-wingers to snipe back at me after I strike a nerve.

So the news favors us tonight. Even if the momentum of Election Day 2019 carries from state governments to a glorious global order of forced-labor camps and misery for you all, I know that I won't be a part of all that. I can dream of being a Gulag guard, but more realistic aspirations lean toward continuing my pseudonymous trolling of you wonderful people, fashists that you are, from whom I eagerly await your acerbic replies.

Keep the dream alive, Lock Him Up -- and maybe talk to a professional about your scatological fixation -- that's, you know, weird. WE'RE WINNING!!!!

891 Have Americans decided Isis/antifa and Mexican drug lord organizations are move loved by demorats are the political direction that suits them? and despise Christians and love muslims that enslave, behead, pimp foreigners, especially Americans. Or is this just another example of demorats success at Soros soviet style election overthrow ?
