Andy Beshear's campaign says it is time to move on

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT/WKYT) - As Governor Matt Bevin waits for the results of a recanvass, Governor-elect Andy Beshear's campaign manager says it is time to move on.

Sister station WKYT's Bill Bryant sat down with Eric Hyers, Beshear's campaign manager.

Hyers says the race for governor is over.

"Governor-Elect Beshear got more votes, got the most amount of votes, and now he's the governor-elect and he's moving forward, focusing on the transition and making sure that he can be the best governor possible," said Hyers.

While we wait for the recanvass, the secretary of state's office is warning of a robocall trying to dig up evidence of the "irregularities" Matt Bevin has mentioned.

The robocall says: "If you or anyone you know has information regarding suspicious activity at polling locations, please report suspected voter fraud to the state department of elections."

The call gives the correct number for the board of elections, but the Courier-Journal first reported the call is believed to have come from a conservative political activist.

With the upcoming recanvass, the inauguration is still scheduled for December 10 at the capitol which means Beshear's transition team continues to get ready to govern.

"At the end of the day, when people vote for governor, they want to know, are you going to make their lives better or are you going to make them worse? And I think what we saw on Tuesday night was voters all across Kentucky say that they did not want four more years," said Hyers.

Senate President Robert Strivers told WYMT that lawmakers are willing to work with a Beshear administration.

The Courier-Journal reports Strivers told them Bevin needs to conceded if the recanvass does not majorly change things.

We reached out to the Bevin campaign asking for more specifics about the voting irregularities they claim as well as whether they had anything to do with that robocall. They have not responded.
