Conservatives Dealt Statewide Losses In Recent Elections

In a blow to conservatives across America, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) was reelected in his state, which is overwhelmingly Republican, while Ohioans approved a radical abortion-related ballot initiative.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Beshear celebrated his reelection victory, writing, “Tonight, our Commonwealth rejected anger politics and proved there is more that unites us than can ever divide us.”

Beshear rode the victory train after defeating Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a Republican.

Throughout the campaign trail, Beshear distanced himself from President Joe Biden, whose popularity is increasingly diminishing among Democrats. Instead, the Kentucky governor centered his campaign on the fact that Cameron supported an abortion ban in The Bluegrass State, as reported by the Associated Press (AP).

Meanwhile, in Ohio, residents voted on an important issue: abortion. In the Buckeye State, voters approved a radical amendment to the state constitution that argues everyone “has a right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive issues” on things like abortion.

The amendment says that abortions may be prohibited following fetal viability but argues that abortions may not be prevented if a physician deems such a practice as harmful to the life of the mother, the Blaze reported.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, many conservatives denounced the amendment’s approval, arguing that the pro-life movement “has a lot of work to do” if it chooses to protect innocent lives.

“Thousands and thousands of babies will die in Ohio as a result of this evil, anti-human amendment. The pro-life movement and the church have some serious work to do,” the managing editor of the Babylon Bee, Joel Berry, wrote.

“If you’re a pastor of a church and didn’t call your congregation to vote against this amendment, you’re no longer qualified to be a pastor,” Berry added.

“If you’re a pastor and you did speak out, well done—but you need to do more. Appoint a pastor in charge of political engagement. Lead voter registration drives and get people out to the polls. In states where it’s legal, ballot harvest. This is salt & light stuff. Get to work,” he continued.

Conservatives are now looking toward the southeast of the U.S., where Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) is trying to survive a gubernatorial challenge by Mississippi Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley, a Democrat.
