1. More Kentucky Democrats voted for other offices, than Governor.
Look at these races. Compare the number of votes cast for Democrats:
Jack Conway: 426,964
Alison Lundergan Grimes: 493,600
Andy Beshear: 479,929
Adam Edelen: 450,316
There was an independent candidate who got 35,629 votes. Even if those had all gone to Conway, it still would have been less than the number of votes Grimes and Beshear received.
