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

My forecast too. And i expect considerable percentage of Adkins votes going Bevin in November. For many rural "easterners" from coal mines Beshear may be a "liberal city slick"....

LOL, Edelen would be that

101% - yes. But Beshear is pro-choice and popular in urban core. That could be enough for many...

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.
That would be stupid

May be not so stupid concerning Sanderites (economic populism still has some popularity in Kentucky, including it's Eastern part), but surely not Edelen base (too easy to get characterized as "liberal city slicker" and cause massive bleeding of votes in the East)

Campaigning with any national democrats in Kentucky is astoundingly stupid

I never said he must bring Sanders into state. But appeal to "populists" - why not?

This. If Beshear wants to win, he needs to localize localize localize. Gah, this would be so much easier with Adkins.

That's why i considered Adkins to be the best GE candidate. But, as usual, urban core and liberal base outvoted anyone else in primary.
