Candidates Make Final Push For Governor's Seat

Lexington Herald Leader @kentucky.com

Republican gubernatorial nominee Matt Bevin is urging Kentuckians to "vote your values and not your party," Democrat Jack Conway is touting his experience, and Independent Drew Curtis believes he's the best of both sides.

Bevin got a plug Monday from his one-time adversary, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, at his first campaign stop in Louisville. Bevin is competing with Democrat Jack Conway to succeed two-term Governor Steve Beshear. McConnell says Bevin represents the change needed to make Kentucky more competitive. McConnell and Bevin waged a bitter primary campaign fight last year, and Democrats have repeated some of McConnell's attacks against Bevin in this year's campaign.

Conway, the state's attorney general, says he will peel away plenty of Republic support from Bevin. Conway says the race is a contrast "between the mainstream and the extreme."

The polls will be open tomorrow from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm.
