A number of elections for state governors took place on Tuesday this week, including the states of Kentucky, Virginia and Mississippi.
Bevin, Geist said, was "a very unpopular governor", but "the entire impetus of his campaign was he was like Donald Trump. Trump Republicanism is toxic and is killing the GOP".
"Yesterday's victories show that there is an unstoppable momentum for our cause, and we're confident we will carry this energy into more victories for reproductive health champions in 2020 and beyond", Robinson said.
"He attached himself at the hip to Donald Trump".
Beshear dominated in the state's urban areas in Louisville and Lexington and won some traditionally Republican suburban counties in the state's northernmost tip, just south of Cincinnati, to offset Bevin's strength in rural areas. "I would hope [every] person in this room here wants Kentucky to be the greatest version of itself possible, I really hope so". And in Virginia, Democrats flipped control of the state Senate and House, gaining outright control of state government in a state that is often a battleground for the White House. He beat more establishment candidates for his party's nomination and upended the Democrat in the general election with broad support from rural parts of the state.
"I'm here to officially declare today, November 5, 2019, that Virginia is officially blue", the Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, told a crowd of supporters in Richmond.
Of the four states with legislative elections this year, Virginia is the only one where control of the statehouse was up for grabs. Democratic-aligned groups pumped huge amounts of money into the contests as a way to test-drive messaging and campaigns ahead of the 2020 cycle, particularly on gun control and clean energy.
"Tonight's results also make it clear that the misleading, fear-mongering attacks on abortion from Republicans in Kentucky and Virginia failed because voters overwhelmingly support the right for people to make their own health care decisions without politicians getting in the way", Robinson said.
Virginia also drew several high-profile visits from 2020 presidential hopefuls, including former Vice President Joe Biden, as well as current Vice President Mike Pence.
However, Tuesday's elections were not all catastrophic for the Republicans.
The elections offered insight into Trump's popularity among Republicans as he battles an accelerating impeachment inquiry.
Trump has avoided Virginia, where Democrats found success in suburban swing districts in last year's congressional elections, as they did in states across the country.
But he nearly surely would have been claiming victory had it not been for the Libertarian nominee, since the razor-thin, 5,333-vote difference between the major party candidates was more than made up for by Hicks' 28,436.
With just four states conducting statewide elections on Tuesday, the sample was too small to extrapolate national trends.
