FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Tuesday’s uncertain results in Kentucky’s Republican primary for governor could delay the party’s efforts to unite behind a candidate and give Democratic nominee Jack Conway a head start.
Kentucky’s volatile Republican primary ended in a virtual tie Tuesday night as Louisville businessman Matt Bevin led Agriculture Commissioner James Comer by just 83 votes.
Comer did not concede and told supporters he would ask the Secretary of State to review the election results, which by state law would happen on May 28th.
Republican Hal Heiner conceded before 9 p.m. and congratulated Bevin on winning the race. He did not mention Comer in his concession speech. Comer told supporters in Frankfort he would support Bevin if the election results stand.
