EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The Trump campaign has released a statement claiming it helped five of six Kentucky Republicans win statewide victories, including Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron, who will be the first black AG in the Commonwealth. He’ll also be the first Republican to hold the office since 1948.

The statement goes on to say, the president “just about dragged Gov. Matt Bevin across the finish line”.

The full statement can be found below:

“President Trump’s rally helped five of six Kentucky Republicans win clear statewide victories, including Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron, who will be the first black A.G. in Kentucky history and the first Republican to hold the office since 1948. The President just about dragged Gov. Matt Bevin across the finish line, helping him run stronger than expected in what turned into a very close race at the end. A final outcome remains to be seen.”

All Kentucky precincts are reporting. These results are unofficial until the Secretary of State’s Office certifies them.

Tuesday night, Bevin said he will not concede to Andy Beshear. He said it’s a too close to call.
