LOUISVILLE, KY (KFVS) -

Governor-elect Matt Bevin addressed the media for the first time Friday morning.

Bevin says he's shutting down the state healthcare exchange Kynect, so now those customers will move to an Affordable Care Act plan.

He also says he's planning on making changes to Kentucky's marriage license forms, that  accommodate Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis.

"We will remove the names of the county clerks from the marriage forms. That is going to be done. The argument that that cannot be done is bologna," says Bevin.

"It has been changed three times already. For crying out loud. We can do better by our county clerks. I do intend to make that change. We will take those names off those forms. We will do that by executive order."

Bevin also said he would not release his tax records, something he said he'd do during his campaign. 

It was Bevin's first official media availability since he beat Jack Conway in Tuesday's election.

With all precincts reporting, Bevin led with 53 percent, or 511,771 votes.

Jack Conway was second with 44 percent, or 426,827 votes. Drew Curtis was third with 4 percent, or 35,627 votes.

Bevin is only the second Republican governor in Kentucky in four decades.
