Bevin stole his own victory

In a state where party registration is not a true indication of political sentiment, Republicans dominated at the polls Tuesday despite losing at the top of the ticket. The state’s conservative bent is strong, even though it appears Matt Bevin’s political fortunes are broken. It’s important to note the election night tallies will be double checked in a statewide recanvass and it’s likely Bevin’s camp will challenge the outcomes by appealing to the courts for the more extensive recount process. Yet the most obvious fact will not change: Bevin is his own worst enemy.
