KENTUCKY (WFIE) - In the race for Kentucky Governor, Incumbent Andy Beshear has won over Republican Daniel Cameron.

14 News’ Caroline Klapp is in Louisville where both candidates are for election night.

Governor Beshear took the stage to address the crowd at 9:30 eastern time, calling the last two years the best for economic development in the history of state.

He also says he is the third governor in the Commonwealth to serve two consecutive terms

”This wasn’t my win. This was our victory,” he says. “It’s a victory that sends a loud, clear message. A message that candidates should run for something and not against someone. And I’m going to work as hard as I can for every single one of you. So from the Beshear family to every Kentucky family, we love you, goodnight and God bless.”

And just a few miles away in Louisville, Republican Daniel Cameron took the stage to thank all of his supporters for their work in his campaign.

It was a tight race with Beshear taking 53 percent of the vote. Cameron lost with 47 percent.

“It has been such an honor to run as the republican nominee for governor and to run alongside someone who is the pride of Henderson County and the best dressed man I know,” Cameron states.

Beshear says he is ready to continue his work on investing in public education and continuing the progress on the economy.
