Another Republican lawmaker in Kentucky has come out against the idea of Gov. Bevin contesting results of the Nov. 5 election in the state legislature.
According to unofficial tallies, the GOP incumbent was defeated by 5,189 votes by Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear.
Bevin claims there were voting “irregularities,” but has shown no evidence. Republican state Senator Mike Wilson of Bowling Green says if the recanvass doesn’t change the results, Bevin should move on.
“You have to show clear, compelling evidence that there was fraud that would have changed the outcome of the election," Wilson said in an interview with WKU Public Radio.
