FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Following the recanvass Thursday, Governor Matt Bevin has called a press conference for 2:15 p.m. at his office in Frankfort.
County clerks office across the Commonwealth have been recanvassing the votes in the state's governor race.
Secretary of State Alison L Grimes stated that the tallying was going smoothly. Voter totals initially showed Democrat Andy Beshear as the winner by over 5,000 votes and after the recanvass it appears the winner will remain the same.
Sec. of State says if you’re comparing the recanvass to election night #️⃣s, you’ll find changes in Anderson, Elliott, & Logan counties.— Karolina Buczek (@Karolina_Buczek) November 14, 2019
