Tuesday's Kentucky GOP governor's primary promised drama, and it didn't disappoint. Not hardly.

As of Wednesday morning, the race is still too close to call. The spoiler candidate, businessman and former U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin, leads the original favorite and establishment candidate, Agricultural Commissioner James Comer, by 83 votes out of more than 214,000 cast, according to the Associated Press. A recount is likely in the works.

Some, including a local TV station and the election gurus at Ace of Spades HQ, called the race for Bevin when the tea party candidate, who entered the race just four months ago, won three of Kentucky's most populous counties.

Bevin supporters joined in, confidently declaring victory. Even Bevin himself did so. Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who had remained publicly neutral in the race, thought it was over too.

But then Comer started coming back. Paul deleted his tweet when he realized the race was far from over. Politico's Steve Shepard urged caution.

Comer, a candidate who many had left for dead after damaging abuse accusations were revealed in the final weeks of the campaign, pulled out a miracle by gaining an unexpected amount of ground in the rural counties in Western Kentucky. The race narrowed. Ace of Spades issued a rare retraction.

By 10 p.m., Bevin's lead was determined to be less than 100 votes, and AP wasn't calling the race for anyone. Comer took to the stage to tell his supporters he was going to ask for a re-canvassing of the results from each county. There are no runoff elections or automatic recounts in Kentucky, but a candidate can ask the secretary of state in writing to review the vote totals by county, according to the AP.

Bevin still apparently couldn't believe it.

We'll have to wait another week for that recount to start. The winner will face off against Democrat Jack Conway, the state's attorney general who easily won his primary Tuesday. In the meantime, the two GOP candidates left in the four-way race couldn't resist taking shots at each other in what has become an incredibly nasty campaign.

There's more: Adding to the re-canvassing drama is the fact that Bevin burned a lot of bridges with state's Republican leader during his 2014 primary challenge to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Bevin refused to endorse McConnell after he lost, and McConnell has been coy about whether he'd help Bevin in the general election if he's the nominee.

Somewhere along last night's craziness, Bevin also apparently managed to insult McConnell's 2014 Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, who happens to be the current secretary of state — and in charge of this week's recount.

All part of a day's work in the saga that is the Kentucky governor's race.
