Bevin ran a close race against Democrat Andy Beshear but is trailing by about 5,000 votes ahead of a recanvass on Thursday.

McConnell says he is "sorry Matt came up short." He said the re-canvass is unlikely to change the results of the Nov. 5 election and "barring a dramatic reversal on the re-canvass, we'll have a new governor in three weeks."

McConnell was in Carroll County on Monday to tout a US-Spain treaty he helped pass that cut the taxes for the North American Stainless plant.

Bevin cited voting irregularities in the governor's race but has not provided evidence.
