Was it a rally, or a roast?

President Trump was in Lexington, Kentucky, on Monday night for a rally in support of the state's Republican governor, Matt Bevin. Bevin is facing Democrat Andy Beshear, the state attorney general, in the gubernatorial race, with voters hitting the polls on Tuesday.

Experts say Tuesday's election could go either way.
