FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) – Incumbent Matt Bevin has once again received the Republican nomination in his attempt to win a second term as Governor in Kentucky.
Bevin was able to defeat Rep. Robert Goforth, Ike Lawrence and William Woods in the Republican race, but he has only garnered approximately one out of every two Republican votes with 80 percent of precincts reporting.
Rep. Robert Goforth was able to garner 40 percent of the vote. He would concede the race and announce his support for Governor Bevin in the general election. Goforth was highly critical of Bevin during the primary campaign.
The incumbent Bevin didn’t do much campaigning during the primary, but he did make television ad buys and received some support from President Donald Trump through recorded phone calls and social media.
