I thought Bevin was toast after the issues with the teachers. But again, it is a republican trying to fix years of democratic demise in the pension system. But I think Bevin has a great shot to win re-election. And the KY House and Senate have gone Republican over the last 10 years, so would be great.
Yea if remember, Bevin was 7 points behind on election eve polls and won by 4-5.
Bevin won by 9, actually.
Bevin’s main problem was his comment about the teachers demonstrating in Frankfort that would lead to sexual abuse of children that severely damaged his personal popularity.
But, the campaign ads have effectively moved things back to being more about the issues than personality and Bevin is regaining footing as a result as more people learn how far to the left Beshear is.
