HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Candidates for Kentucky’s statewide offices make their last push for votes the day before the primary.

Attorney General Andy Beshear, a Democratic candidate for governor, stopped in Henderson and other places across western Kentucky.

His father, former Governor Steve Beshear, and running mate Jacqueline Coleman, appeared with him Monday morning.

Beshear said its important people vote May 21st, especially with low turnout predicted for the primaries.

“We are better than having just 12.5% of our registered voters show up. They’re selecting the nominees for governor. This is a big critical role that makes an impact on everybody’s daily life.”

Beshear is running against former State Auditor Adam Edelen and State Representative Rocky Adkins for the nomination.
