Andy Beshear wins Governor race in Kentucky

Democrats have won control of Virginia’s state legislature for the first time in a generation, while the Democratic candidate for governor of Kentucky also claimed victory in what could be a huge double blow to Donald Trump one year out from the 2020 election.

The Democratic party prevailed in both the state house and senate in Virginia, a state often viewed as a “bellwether” for national politics and a battleground in presidential elections. Democratic governor Ralph Northam will now have scope to press ahead with legislation such as tighter gun control in the state.

“I’m here to officially declare today, November 5 2019, that Virginia is officially blue,” Northam, told a crowd of supporters in Richmond.
