FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andy Beshear says he has won an endorsement from the Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police.

Beshear has stressed his record as attorney general in his campaign against Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. He says he has worked with law enforcement on his top goals as attorney general.

Beshear points to his efforts to prosecute child sex offenders, clear the state’s rape kit backlog, combat human trafficking, stop senior scams and battle the drug epidemic.

The Democratic challenger says he’s committed to fully funding pensions for law enforcement officials, and says he’ll fight for policies to keep communities safe.
