    Following the tight primary election on May 18, Gubernatorial Candidate James Comer has officially requested a recanvassing of the state’s vote count. Comer and his running mate, Chris McDaniel, trailed Louisville businessman Matt Bevin and Jenean Hampton by 83 votes out of 214,187 votes cast.

    The Republican Primary for State Agricultural Commissioner has led to a recanvassing request as well. State Representative Richard Heath of Mayfield lost to State Representative Ryan Quarles of Georgetown by 1,427 votes.

    Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes accepted both requests, saying “Our office is always available to assist county boards of elections in any way possible. Integrity in our elections processes is crucial, and Kentuckians deserve to know that their votes are properly counted and tabulated.” The recanvassing for both elections will convene on May 28.

    Matt Bevin, even before the Republican nomination is official, has agreed to a debate with Democratic contender Jack Conway. The debate, to be held at Centre College on October 6 at 6pm, will be sponsored by AARP and Wave 3 anchor Scott Reynolds will be the moderator.  

    An ongoing civil suit by Democratic candidate for governor Geoff Young gains heat following his defeat Tuesday. Young is suing Governor Steve Beshear, Jack Conway, Alison Lundergan Grimes and other prominent Democratic Party members for “conspiracy to defraud Kentucky’s Democratic voters, corruption, cronyism and intentional violation of KDP (Kentucky Democratic Party) bylaws.” The civil suit asks for Conway’s disqualification and $16 million.
