The Tea Party Just Had a Huge Victory in Kentucky

Polls showed the race a dead heat in the hours prior to the election, but Tea Party-backed non-establishment candidate Matt Bevin, who has never served in political office previously, is now the new Governor of Kentucky.

Republican Matt Bevin easily defeated Democrat Jack Conway and was immediately congratulated by Tea Party stars, Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY), who are both GOP presidential candidates.

The pro-Constitution, pro-freedom Tea Party victory by Matt Bevin will likely be a fearful event by the entrenched, corrupt establishments in both political parties, but perhaps even more scarier for Democrats.

With 93.5% of precincts reporting, Matt Bevin crushed Democrat Jack Conway, 52.2% to 44.1%. Independent candidate Drew Curtis received 3.7%.

As The Blaze reported, Matt Bevin will become only the second Republican governor in Kentucky in four decades.

“From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all who voted today. I’m ready to get to work on moving Kentucky forward. We are Kentucky!” Bevin wrote on his Facebook page following the victory.
