Hundreds attend governor's prayer breakfast

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear told a crowd of hundreds that Jesus' command in the Bible to care for the vulnerable has guided his decisions in policy and budget

Beshear made his comments during the 49th annual Governor's Prayer Breakfast at the Frankfort Convention Center. The two-term governor said Kentucky has been tested during his term, referring to the $1.6 billion in state budget cuts during the economic recession and a series of devastating tornados. But through it all Beshear said he has worked hard to make sure every community has access to quality education.

Former University of Kentucky football star Jacob Tamme was the featured speaker, fresh off an appearance in Super Bowl XLVIII as a tight end for the Denver Broncos.
