Candidates for Ky. governor campaigning ahead of Election Day

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The governor's race is down to the wire.

The two candidates leading the polls, Democrat Jack Conway and Republican Matt Bevin, are making their last stops on the campaign trail and taking their last shots at their opponents before Election Day.

Conway started campaigning Monday morning with a get out the vote rally in the Palomar Centre while Bevin talked with a crowd of supporters at the Blue Grass Airport.

The candidates are separated by five points in the latest WKYT-Herald Leader Poll. Conway is polling at 45 percent and Bevin has 40 percent.

WKYT checked to see if Drew Curtis, the independent candidate who is polling at 6 percent, would be making any public appearances on Monday but WKYT did not find any public events.

During Bevin and Conway's rallies, the men encouraged their supporters to show up at the polls tomorrow and to not show up alone.

After they hit each other hard on their differences on early childhood education and health insurance, they reminded their constituents what will happen if they win the election.

"We've got a positive plan for job creation. We have a positive plan for workforce development and to help our employers find our employees with the skills they need in this modern economy," said Conway.

Bevin said, "After we've put together a cabinet, after we have put the budget together, as part of this next session we must fix the pension crisis."

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
