FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Republican Gov. Matt Bevin says his administration helped put Kentucky on an upward trajectory as he prepares to hand over power to his Democratic successor, Andy Beshear.

Bevin received a long ovation on Monday from administration employees who lined a Capitol hallway as the outgoing governor walked to his office.

They all gathered in the Rotunda, where Bevin said they had set a new standard for how government should operate in his single term.

Beshear, who defeated Bevin in last month’s close election, takes office Tuesday.
