Edelen is the Kentucky Left Candidate, Beashar and Adkins are Centrist.

That may show how #KentuckyHicks still are Democrats.

The Dawn has fell for the old
As Beashar has won
Thought to be split
By the Progressive Edelen
Liberalism has won
As Adkins has fallen
On the way to the generals
Beashar against a split Bevin
Fought a battle against Goforth
On the Generals go!

I wonder what percentage of Adkins voters in Elliott county will go to Beshear.
60% I guess

Not surprising results at all tonight, yeah Beshear! He will get stomped by Bevin though.

 from coal mines Beshear may be a "liberal city slick"....
LOL, Edelen would be that

Fletcher performed better in his primary against Northup in 2007, before he lost in a landslide against Beshear in the general. The primary results were terrible for Bevin, but most of Goforth's wins came from very conservative areas, so I don't know if Beshear will be able to exploit Bevin's bare win in the primary. Rocky would have been best suited to peal through the areas Goforth did well in.

That said, wouldn't be surprised if Beshear totally blows it and loses by 8%+
Are you supporting Beshear with you wanting to vomit if Beshear is elected Governor against Vomit Bevin.

Beshear has to campaign somewhat with in the east with Rocky. Can't ignore that part of the state.
And he needs to energize the Edelen base and the Sanderites by campaigning with Bernie.

Something tells me that this thread will be the biggest dumpster fire on the board if this race looks even remotely competitive going into November.
It is remotely competitive.

Why is it that of the two governors Kentucky has had since the early 1970s that were Republicans (Ernie Fletcher and now Matt Bevin), they were both so horrible that even Republican voters could only barely stomach them?  Was their statewide bench so sparse that they simply were unable to field better-quality candidates?  

Yes, their statewide bench really was that sparse. There were no statewide executive office Republicans in the lead up to the 2003 gubernatorial election. In the lead up to 2015, James Comer was the only statewide Republican and he seemed pretty promising if I remember right, but he was accused of having his girlfriend from college get an abortion and that allowed Bevin to upset him in the primary
Also, Anne Northup could have had a respectable loss instead of the 58-41 margin.
