#MoscowMitchIsNext Trends After Republican Matt Bevin Loses Kentucky Governor's Race

<b>#MoscowMitchIsNext Trends After Republican Matt Bevin Loses Kentucky Governor's Race</b>During Tuesday's election, Andy Beshear, a Democrat, defeated incumbent Republican Governor Matt Bevin by a narrow margin of less than half a percentage point. Despite the close race, which Bevin refused to concede, McConnell's critics saw the Democratic victory in a historically red state to be indicative of the senior Kentucky senator's fate.
After Democrats flipped Kentucky's gubernatorial office, people speculated it meant trouble for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, sending "MoscowMitchIsNext" to trend on Twitter. As of Wednesday morning, the hashtag "MoscowMitchIsNext," had nearly 5,000 tweets tied to it with people expressing their opinion that McConnell should be worried about his place in the Senate. Amy McGrath, a Democrat and former fighter pilot, raised $10.7 million in the first three months of her campaign against Sen. Mitch McConnell, a sign of the overwhelming desire in her party to kick the Senate majority leader out of office even if the bid seems like a longshot in deeply red Kentucky.
