Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has won re-election.
With 51% of precincts reporting, Beshear leads Republican state Senate President David Williams, by a margin of 58%-32%, and Beshear has been projected as the winner by the Associated Press.
Polls throughout the race showed Beshear heavily favored to win re-election. During the final week of the campaign, Williams mounted a series of attacks against Beshear for having taken part in a Hindu religious ceremony, at the groundbreaking for a factory owned by an Indian company.
