It’s Election Day in Kentucky. Voters will cast their ballots for six constitutional officers, including the Governor. Democrat Andy Beshear had been expected to win, but the latest poll shows Republican Daniel Cameron has caught up in the polls. In either case, the race appears to be very close. There’s a history of Republicans underperforming in Kentucky polls. Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin were both behind but went on to win their elections by wide margins. It’s a good sign for Cameron, who has a strong chance of victory if Kentucky conservatives vote today. If you don’t know where to vote, you can ask your county clerk’s office.
