Democratic Candidates for Governor Face Off In Debate


We're a week away from the primary election and the candidates are on the move. Governor Fletcher continues a six day bus tour and his republican rivals Anne Northup and Billy Harper are also on the road.

Last night the democrats hoping to get the nomination for governor faced off again on statewide television. In the debate the five other candidates fired on former lt. Governor Steve Beshear's strong support for casino gambling.

Beshear has based several promises on money from gaming revenue. House speaker Jody Richards says the republican senate might block a gaming amendment and Steve Henry and Bruce Lunsford said it could take a long time for the state to get money from more gambling.
