LAURA INGRAHAM: [Kentucky Governor-elect Matt Bevin] he managed to pull ahead by hitting on some issues that frankly the Republican Party had essentially kicked to the back burner, social issues. Gay marriage, abortion, the cultural issues. The glue -- had been the glue of the Republican coalition, getting those social conservatives out to vote, etc., etc. So he beats this attorney general candidate Conway, Jack Conway, and a lot of people are saying this is the Trump effect. 


I'm not sure he won because he wanted to change the tenor. I mean, I think he won because people are fed up, and they want a new way forward, which the Democrat (sic) governors haven't been offering the state of Kentucky. So Conway vastly outspent Bevin on television, but Republicans had been frustrated both by Bevin's frequent missteps and by the manufacturing executive, his hesitance to put much of his own money into the campaign. Late last month, the RGA pulled its TV ads for Bevin, this is from The Atlantic's piece on this, pulled its TV ads for Bevin sending a signal it believed the race was lost. Thanks, thanks so much. Bevin responded by putting up a million dollars worth of commercials on his own, and on Tuesday morning, the RGA announced it was going back on the air for the last two weeks of the race. We decided to go back in because we'd been doing the polling, according to the Republican Governors Association, and they saw Bevin fighting back and fighting back hard. And he was praising, on the campaign trail, the guy who said he was going to change the tenor of the election, praising Trump on the campaign trail. So it -- for the last couple weeks it was, “Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump.” Looks like the Trumpians that everybody makes fun of, the Trumpians helped save this race in the state of Kentucky. Could this be a sign of things to come? The voters turning on the establishment, pushing the big pot and pushing the big Democrat Jack Conway in Kentucky.
