President Donald Trump encouraged his supporters in Kentucky to vote Tuesday to re-elect the state’s Republican governor, declaring it would send a message to congressional Democrats conducting an impeachment inquiry.

Trump held a campaign rally in Lexington, Kentucky on behalf of Governor Matt Bevin, who is being challenged by the state’s Democratic attorney general, Andy Beshear.
