Gov. Bevin concedes election following recanvass

<b>Gov. Bevin concedes election following recanvass</b>At a podium inside his office, Governor Matt Bevin conceded the election nine days after losing to Gov.-elect Andy Beshear.
The governor formally requested a recanvass following his loss to Attorney General Andy Beshear. On election night he refused to concede, saying that he believed there had been "voting irregularities." "This is a close, close race. We are not conceding this race by any stretch," he declared on election night. After Thursday's events, Secretary of State confirmed that Bevin had lost by a total of 5,136 votes. The challenge to the results did not deter Gov.-elect Beshear, who named his transition team the day after the election.
