Voters will cast ballots in key off-year elections tonight. Republicans will try to win gubernatorial races in Kentucky and Mississippi after Trump campaigned in both states for Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and Mississippi gubernatorial candidate Tate Reeves. In Virginia, Democrats are seeking to flip the state legislature to take control of all levers in a key 2020 state.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News throughout the evening for live updates of all of the key results.

All times eastern.

12:05 AM: Trump weighs in on Kentucky/Mississippi results:

Congratulations to @tatereeves on winning Governor of the Great State of Mississippi. Our big Rally on Friday night moved the numbers from a tie to a big WIN. Great reaction under pressure Tate!

#ElectionNight Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night. @MattBevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!). Winning in Mississippi Governor race!

Kentucky Governor Race (95% reporting)

Andy Beshear (D) 670,304 49.5%
Matt Bevin (R) 656,876 48.5%

— David P Gelles (@gelles) November 6, 2019

8:20 PM: One projection for Beshear though the race is still too close to call:

With 83 percent of precincts in:

Beshear, Andy (D) 609,695 50%
Bevin, Matt (R) 576,527 48%
Hicks, John (L) 25,102 2%

— LEX 18 News (@LEX18News) November 6, 2019

I’ve seen enough. Projection: Andy Beshear (D) has defeated Gov. Matt Bevin (R) in #KYGOV.

— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) November 6, 2019

Trump’s approval rating is quite high in KY. The state is trending red even on the state level… And yet, here we are with Beshear more than holding his own. Bevin is a bad politician and Beshear is a good one… Candidates matter.

8:15 PM: Cameron wins AG race. Gubernatorial race too close to call. Trump on Monday predicted a star will be born after praising Cameron.
