Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky won the state's Republican primary on Tuesday, securing his re-election victory.
On Tuesday night, no winner was known in the Democratic primary, which is closely watched as the party sees a rare opportunity to occupy the governor's mansion in a deep red state.

Mr. Bevin, a conservative Republican elected in 2015, has the dubious distinction of being the country's least popular governor, according to the election organization Morning Consult. And while Kentucky is reliably red in federal elections, Democrats have often been successful there, which makes them hopeful that they will be able to dismiss Mr. Bevin in November.
