McConnell Turns On Bevin Over Election Loss, Says Kentucky Will ‘Have A Different Governor In 3 Weeks’

mcconnell-bevin

Republican Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has been complaining about his election loss last week to Democrat Andy Beshear. Now, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is refusing to comply with Bevin’s complaint and will allow Beshear to take over as the new Governor of Kentucky.

“I’m sorry Matt came up short,” McConnell said, “but he had a good four years and all indications are, barring some dramatic reversal on the recanvass, we’ll have a different governor in three weeks.”

“We had a recanvass, they added it up and it didn’t change and we all moved on,” McConnell said.

McConnell isn’t the only Republican who turned on Bevin. Kentucky Senate President Robert Stivers told Bevin to accept defeat last week.

“It’s time to call it quits and go home, say he had a good four years and congratulate Gov.-elect Beshear,” said Stivers.
