Well, this one is more than a bit surprising, no? Despite waging his re-election campaign for the Kentucky governorship against Bernie and socialism and linking Beshear with Bernie, it looks like heavily poll-favored Trump-buddy GOP Gov. Matt Bevin has lost by about 5,100 votes out of 1,442,622 votes cast and counted. Just 5000 votes. I guess voting matters sometimes in someways. Why didn't TPTB fix those voting machines? I suppose that trick can still be played but were they really so stupid as not to use it in advance before the votes were counted?
Bevin's political ad was a real piece of work:
Bernie Sanders is in Louisville, supporting his friend, Andy Beshear, and spreading his hateful class warfare and communist ideology...
Kentucky voters....Which side are you on?
Do you support socialism or do you still believe that America is the greatest nation on earth? pic.twitter.com/4ZKYO1FNid

Anyway and however it turns out, this is a damn good sign for Bernie especially given it was in the southern state of Kentucky.
And this bit from some Knoxville cats also looks promising:
So my blue city in a red state now has two “Bernie Bro’s,” AKA two female DSA members on city council (one we elected last time & now a new one) and a brand new PROGRESSIVE mayor, who beat the neoliberal in a runoff. We also have a majority female council now.
