Comer Concedes Governor's Race in Ky., Bevin Is GOP Nominee

Friday, 29 May 2015 09:23 AM

James Comer has conceded the governor's race in Kentucky, ending a tumultuous Republican primary and handing the nomination to Louisville businessman Matt Bevin.

In a news release Friday morning, 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 news conference at the Republican Party of Kentucky's headquarters for 10 a.m. Friday along with the other Republican nominees in November's general election.

Comer said he enthusiastically endorses Bevin's candidacy, saying he grew to appreciate his knowledge of issues, his work ethic and his morals.
