Overview
Three governorships were at stake, two held by Republicans and one by a Democrat. 
Democrats achieved a pick up in Kentucky, where Andy Beshear defeated incumbent Gov. Matt Bevin and held on to Louisiana, where Gov. John Bel Edwards was elected to a second term.  Republicans held on to the open seat in Mississippi, where Gov. Phil Bryant was term limited.  These results were part of a successful off-year cycle for Democrats (1, 2), while President Trump, who rallied with the Republican candidates in all three states, lost two of three.  Notice that the lit. pieces of all three candidates have a mention or photo of Trump.
