Abstract

Republican voters in Kentucky went to the polls last week in a gubernatorial primary ahead of the general election in November. With the results of the primary on a knife edge of only 83 votes between the winner, Matt Bevin and the 2nd placed candidate, James Comer, the latter has requested a recanvas to contest the vote count. Anne Cizmar writes that the primary has been beset by allegations of domestic violence towards Comer and negative ads towards Bevin. Whoever wins the primary fight will face a tough battle to beat the Democratic nominee, Jack Conway, in a state which has tended to return Republicans to national office, but Democrats to the governor’s mansion.
