GHENT, Ky. (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin "had a good four years" during a visit to a steel plant in Kentucky.

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.
