"Clearly this is not a repudiation of Republicans in Kentucky", Fleischer continued.

The losses were largely attributable to local forces.

Even so, those races - and other contests in MS and New Jersey that saw no changes in power Tuesday - were embraced by Trump and the Republican Party as key tests of the president's popularity.

The elections offered insight into Trump's popularity among Republicans as he battles an accelerating impeachment inquiry.

Tuesday's election could help cement Democratic rule for the next decade, because the winners will decide who controls the next redistricting process.

Mr Bevin had closely aligned himself to Trump during his election campaign, and his failure to secure a clear victory will be seen as both a blow to Trump's support and his policy.

At a rally on Monday night, President Trump said if Mr Bevin lost this election, it would be remembered as "the greatest defeat in the history of the world".

At the rally Trump told the crowd: "If you lose, it sends a really bad message ... you can't let that happen to me". 'If you win, they are going to make it like, "Ho hum".

Once in office, Bevin governed a lot like Trump, as well. "Based on the Kentucky results, Mitch McConnell @senatemajldr will win BIG in Kentucky next year!"

Twitter ending all political ads
Facebook has faced criticism since it disclosed earlier in October that it will not fact-check ads by politicians or their campaigns.

Beshear was leading with 49.4 percent, or 706,865 votes, to Bevin's 48.7 percent, or 696,918 votes. Beshear claimed victory, but The Associated Press said it was too close to call.

On Twitter, Parscale reiterated that Bevin's loss (though he has not conceded), has nothing to do with Trump. Bevin was in lockstep with Trump, as was Reeves in Mississippi. He was ahead by five points before you went to Kentucky.

Democrats have pledged that when they take power, they will pass an agenda that Republicans have blocked for years, including stricter gun laws, a higher minimum wage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, making Virginia the final state needed for possible passage of the gender equality measure.

"The networks are already full of crap with Kentucky, be honest!" he said.

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.

Here's why the result could have a devastating impact on Donald Trump's chances of reelection next year. He said the results would hold and that it was time to move forward.

The governor expressed great pride and excitement for the state's "extraordinary" achievements in the past four years, -a net increase of almost 93,000 jobs according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Democrats have won every statewide contest, picked up three additional congressional seats and now are set to control both the state house and the Executive Mansion for the first time since 1994. Neither candidate received a majority in Louisiana's nonpartisan primary last month, so they'll compete in a runoff November 16.
