Flyer Flap In Governor's Race

Kentucky's republican party plans to distribute 200,000 flyers with a fake picture depicting democrat Steve Beshear as a high stakes gambler.

Republican Chairman Steve Robertson says it a humorous way to point out Beshear's support for gambling.

Democratic Chairman Jonathan Miller told the herald leader that it's a smear tactic and will backfire.

The ad carries a line at the bottom that says the depiction of Beshear is 'not an actual photo.'

Meanwhile, 27 NEWSFIRST has learned both campaigns will go on TV next week.
