DNC on Andy Beshear’s Victory

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement on Andy Beshear’s election as governor of Kentucky:

“Congratulations to Governor-elect Beshear, Kentucky Democrats, and DGA Chair Raimondo — this earth-shattering victory in a state Trump won by 30 points should terrify him and every Republican running in 2020. Governor-elect Beshear has dedicated his life to solving big problems and working on the issues that keep families up at night, and I’m proud to see him take that fight to the governor’s mansion.

“Americans across the country are voting for the values that Democrats fight for every day. That’s why we’re competing in every election and every state, and it’s why in 2020 we are going to defeat Trump and win Democratic victories at every level.”

The DNC made a six-figure investment in the Kentucky Democratic Party to support this race.
