A day after a recanvass of last week’s Kentucky Republican gubernatorial primary showed no significant changes, Agriculture Commissioner James Comer conceded the nomination to Louisville businessman Matt Bevin.

Comer on Friday endorsed Bevin for governor. Bevin and his running mate, Jenean Hampton, face Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway and lieutenant governor candidate Sannie Overly in the November general election.

Bevin defeated Comer by 83 votes.

Bevin is hosting a rally Friday morning. We’ll have more later on.
