Kentucky Elects Steve Beshear (D)

When first elected 4 years ago, Ernie Fletcher (R) was Kentucky's first Republican governor in more than 30 years. But his administration, the AP reports, was dogged by an investigation into political interference in state hiring that led to Fletcher's indictment on three misdemeanor charges.

Tonight, Kentucky has elected Democrat Steve Beshear to the governor's post, halting Fletcher from serving a second term.
