  • Dem wins Kentucky state House seat in district Trump won by 49 points

Regrettably, Johnson took his own life after those allegations surfaced, by shooting himself in Bullitt County.

The wife of a former Kentucky Republican lawmaker who killed himself a year ago after facing sexual assault allegations has lost her attempt to fill the remainder of her husband's term in a special election that ended up being a referendum of sorts on the #metoo movement.

Democrats flipped a GOP-held Kentucky state House seat on Tuesday, handing the party its 37th state legislative pickup nationwide since Donald Trump won the presidency.

Donald Trump Jr. gives a thumbs-up beside his father after Trump Sr.'s debate with Hillary Clinton on September 26. Sources, however, said that the Indian government is treating Trump Jr's trip to India as a "private visit".

In their lone face-to-face encounter, Linda Belcher channeled her animated likeness and told Johnson, "I was gonna punch you, but I'm holding wine".

Mrs Johnson has strenuously denied the sexual abuse allegations against her husband, claiming he was a victim of 'an assault from the left'. Belcher won with 68.4 percent of the unofficial vote. The House seat that represents the state's 49th District has been vacant since December, when Republican Rep. Dan Johnson committed suicide after the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published a story in which Johnson was accused of molesting a 17-year-old girl at the church where he served as pastor. Belcher first ran for the seat in 2009 as a widow, as well, after her husband Rep. Larry Belcher (D) died in a auto crash in 2008.

Following allegations of his frightful crime, Johnson committed suicide, leaving his seat open and for the taking.

WWE Raw Results: Braun Strowman makes a mark before Elimination Chamber
In round three, Elias rushed to the ring to try and quickly defeat a battered and exhausted Rollins who still wouldn't quit. - A new episode of Raw Talk will air after the Elimination Chamber 2018 pay-per-view event next Sunday on the WWE Network.

"I've heard from and about people all day long saying they went to vote for me at the correct polling place and were refused the opportunity to vote", Johnson said in a news release.

Democrats say it is proof that their party is gaining momentum ahead of the midterm elections. "It's like we're in a third world country". In 2018 alone, Democrats have won Republican-held state legislative districts in Missouri, Wisconsin and Florida.

Belcher's victory is nonetheless symbolically important since Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton among the district's voters, 72 percent to 23 percent.
