It wasn't the best night for Kentucky's Republican Party.

But the GOP did celebrate a win in one of its six races.

James Comer will be Kentucky's next Commissioner of Agriculture.

The State Representative won the election with almost 64% of the vote.

Comer beat Democrat Robert 'Bob' Farmer in the race.

The Republican believes his agriculture experience made a big difference in the campaign.

Comer thanked his supporters Tuesday night at the Griffin Gate Marriott in Lexington.

"They said you can't win because your last name isn't Farmer. My friends..they were wrong," says Comer.

The current State Representative says he was blessed to have bipartisan support in every county.

Former KY GOP Chairwoman Ellen Williams says, "I think you saw Jamie Comer put together a coalition of supporters...Democrats, Republicans, urban, rural, Tea Party, Libertarians."
