After the result of the 2019 gubernatorial elections in Kentucky and Mississippi, the Democrat has a narrow lead in Kentucky and the Republican barely won in Mississippi. Cause for concern for Republicans in 2020?

State and federal issues differ. Beshear has the advantage of 1 not being the unpopular incumbent and 2 his dad was the previous Governor. On a federal lever though they will vote for Trump.

Not at all. The fact that a black republican was elected as AG in KY should be far more concerning for Dems.

How many hands does it take to count the number of black republicans elected statewide?

I would say not really. I don't really think a governor race where the winner won by <0.4% against a candidate that was the most unpopular governor in the states would clarify what will happen 2020. Especially considering that D candidate should have done much better according to polls and is related to a very well known family in Kentucky. I think elections like this depends more on the candidates than a particular party.

Now Virginia I would be worry about but I think since Obama it really has not been a competitive state anymore. Which I guess is why R didnt really campaign there at all.
