This week in Kentucky politics, Gov. Matt Bevin said he’s going to return to the private sector after losing his race for reelection.

Gov.-elect Andy Beshear named the first appointees of his administration. And incoming Secretary of State Michael Adams says he wants to clean Kentucky’s voter rolls and get a voter ID bill passed before next year’s elections.
