WASHINGTON, 6 NOV . American Democrats have made gains in state elections, in what is being seen as a blow to President Donald Trump.
Democrat Andy Beshear claimed victory in Kentucky’s governor vote, following a tight race in the conservative-leaning, state.
Similarly, Democrats seized full control of the legislature in Virginia for the first time in almost 20 years.
The results are being viewed as a gauge of the political mood ahead of next year’s presidential election.
However, Republicans held onto power in the Mississippi governor vote, following a closely-fought race.
