Pushing to help a Republican governor hold onto his office, President Donald Trump barnstormed for Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky on Monday, delivering a raucous election eve rally in which he delivered a series of stinging attacks on Democrats and the impeachment inquiry that is imperiling his presidency.
The campaign finale at Rupp Arena in Lexington reinforced one of Bevin’s main themes throughout his bitter, closely fought reelection campaign — his alliance with Trump, whose popularity eclipses the governor’s in the Bluegrass State. Trump praised Bevin and linked the governor’s contest against Democrat Andy Beshear, the state’s attorney general, with his own battle against possible impeachment, saying a victory in Kentucky would signal the rise of “an angry majority that will vote the do-nothing Democrats the hell out of office.”
“We are sending a signal to the rest of the country, to the rest of the world what the Republican party stands for,” said Trump. “While we are creating jobs and killing terrorists the radical Democrats are going totally insane.”
“Beshear doesn’t represent you, he represents the Washington swamp and represents the same people who are trying to overthrow the last election,” declared Trump, before adding of Bevin, “He’s such a pain in the ass, but that’s what you want.”
If Bevin loses, Trump said, “they will say Trump suffered the greatest defeat ever. You can’t let that happen to me!”
