According to the Associated Press, the race for governor in Kentucky between incumbent GOP Gov. Matt Bevin and Democrat Andy Beshear was too close to call.
Despite that, Andy Beshear declared a victory on Tuesday night and Matt Bevin announced he would not concede.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Beshear has a lead of 4,658 votes out of more than 1.4 million counted, or a margin of 0.3 percentage points.
There is no mandatory recount law in Kentucky. The AP said on Tuesday that Bevin may request counties recanvass their results, which is not a recount, but rather a check of the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly.
Bevin would need to seek and win a court’s approval for a recount, the process for which would be dictated by the court.
