FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — In November 2015, Republican Matt Bevin defeated his Democratic opponent, Jack Conway, by winning 106 of Kentucky's 120 counties.

That same election night, Democrat Andy Beshear won a narrow race for attorney general.

Now, Bevin is looking for re-election, and Beshear is hoping to move in to the governor's mansion.

Bevin's running mate is State Sen. Ralph Alvarado and Beshear's running mate is Jacqueline Coleman.

On election night, LEX 18 political reporter Karolina Buczek will be covering Bevin and LEX 18 reporter Leigh Searcy will be with Beshear.

Libertarian candidate John Hicks is also on the ballot. His lieutenant governor candidate is Ann Cormican.
