Big in the world of the media right now, Matt Bevin’s loss in Kentucky is being played up as a major loss for Donald Trump. That he went in to try and help save Bevin’s re-election is apparently a major warning sign for Republicans! Panic must be setting in over at the GOP headquarters!
Except Republicans took two other statewide seats and swept the legislature. I can’t see a reason for them to panic. Trump couldn’t “save” Bevin? That’s an admission that Bevin had other flaws that voters didn’t like. The election wasn’t about Trump, who wasn’t involved from the beginning. Bevin was deeply, deeply unpopular and barely scraped by a primary, never mind the general.
There were other major losses for Republicans in suburbs in Pennsylvania, and other races around the country are showing major warning signs for Trump.
