Kentucky Republicans head to the polls next week to select their nominee to take on Gov. Andy Beshear, kicking off three red state battles taking place this year that will set the tone for a fraught 2024 presidential election.
Though all three states that will elect governors this year voted heavily for former President Donald Trump, Democrats hold two of those governorships. Beshear is seeking a second term, while Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) faces term limits.
