Kentucky Gov. Bevin says not conceding race

Andy Beshear, 41, the state attorney general and son of former Democratic Governor Steve Beshear, led by more than 10,000 votes with 98 percent of precincts reporting in a state that Trump won by 30 percentage points in 2016.

Bevin appeared poised on Tuesday to lose to Beshear, despite the state's strong Republican leanings and an election-eve rally headlined by U.S. President Donald Trump.

"With respect to our race, would it be a Bevin race if it wasn't a squeaker.

This is a close, close race.

We are not conceding this race by any stretch.

We want the process to be followed.

Know for a fact that there have been more than a few irregularities.

How many- which ones, affect will be determined according to law," said Bevin.

In a speech in Lexington, Kentucky, on Monday (November 4) night, Trump told voters that they needed to re-elect Bevin, or else pundits would say the president "suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the world."
