GREENVILLE, Ky. (WEHT) While President Trump is campaigning for Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, his opponent, Attorney General Andy Beshear, was in Greenville with other Democratic candidates on their last campaign stops before tomorrow’s vote.
Their bus came down main street Monday afternoon, as the campaign comes down the stretch.
The Greenville stop was one of six in western Kentucky, following others in Henderson and Owensboro yesterday, as beshear and other Democratic candidates rally their supporters to vote tomorrow.
“I have been around politics a long time, and I haven’t seen this kind of enthusiasm in I don’t know how many years,” says Greg Stumbo, the Democratic nominee for Attorney General.
“I have to tell you, every place we’ve gone the last six days, the crowds are getting us excited. We feel really good about tomorrow,” adds Sheri Donahue, Democratic nominee for State Auditor
But with the President in Lexington today campaigning with Governor Bevin, and Vice President Pence being in the state recently as well, Beshear says he’s not worried about them supporting his opponent.”
“We are traveling Kentucky with Kentuckians. We are making this about our families. We have traveled all day long in this bus with teachers because so much is on the line for them. I am standing here with union families because so much is on the line with them,” he said.
Some supporters believe at least some of their candidates will win.
“I do know that Heather French Henry will win,” says Kim Wardrip of Greenville. “She’s just got a wonderful personality and she’s really good at what she does, and I love her dearly.” Others think some races, including the one for governor, will be close.
“I think it’s going to be tight, being honest. I think it’s going to be tight,” said Donna Hunt of Greenville. “I just think there is so much publicity about Andy that’s not true. It might hurt him.”
