Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin’s defeat at the hands of Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear has been blown out of proportion as the media tries to tie the GOP loss to President Trump, Ari Fleischer told “America’s Newsroom” Wednesday.

“The press has gone gaga over trying to blame it on Donald Trump when you’d have the nation’s most unpopular governor lose a race here,” Fleischer said. “The governor was a Ben Carson supporter in the 2016 primary. He was never a Trump guy.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Clearly this is not a repudiation of Republicans in Kentucky,” Fleischer continued. “It’s a repudiation of one candidate in Kentucky. And that’s bad enough. You never want to lose a governor’s race,” he said.  “But if Republicans win the governorship of Louisiana which is coming up [Nov. 16] and they defeat an incumbent Democrat there — CNN and MSNBC will spend a lot less time on that story.”
