As for Kentucky House Minority Leader Morgan McGarvey (D), his read is that Republicans will stop pushing back against the election results once the re-canvassing is complete, and will opt out of the more formal election contesting.
In the governor's speech Tuesday night, he said in no way is he conceding, joking that it would not be a Bevin race if it was not "a squeaker".
The state is often a battleground during presidential elections, and the Democratic result will be seen by many as a blow to Trump's chances next year.
