FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) — Kentucky’s new governor officially took the oath of office late Monday night.

Gov.-elect Andy Beshear and Lt. Gov.-elect Jacqueline Coleman took the oath just after 12 a.m., solidifying their place in Frankfort. In a speech afterward, Beshear said he was humbled and grateful, vowing that there are “great days ahead.”

Beshear, 42, follows in the footsteps of his father, Steve Beshear, whose two terms as governor preceded the single four-year term of Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. They are the first father-son duo to serve as governors in Kentucky history.

The middle-of-the-night swearing is customary in Kentucky, to ensure continuity at the head of state government.
