Comer Concedes Kentucky Governor's Race

James Comer conceded the governor's race in Kentucky on Friday, ending a tumultuous Republican primary and handing the nomination to Louisville businessman Matt Bevin.
In a morning news release, Comer said he called Bevin and conceded minutes after a Thursday review of the May 19 primary results showed Bevin maintained his 83-vote lead in one of the closest elections in state history. Comer delayed conceding publicly until the morning to give him time to contact some of his most important supporters.
Bevin has scheduled a 10 a.m. news conference at the Republican Party of Kentucky's headquarters along with the other Republican nominees in November's general election.
