Chandler, Barr enter final full day of campaigning

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP/WKYT) - Democratic U.S. Ben Chandler and Republican challenger Andy Barr were preparing for their final full day of campaigning before Tuesday's election.

Both have been making their final sweep across the 6th District in a bus tour, hitting small towns throughout central and eastern Kentucky.

Chandler and Barr have been locked in a tight race that ranks as one of Kentucky's most contentious congressional matchups ever. They have hurled insults at one another in TV ads and stump speeches since late summer.

Chandler, a former attorney general who has served in Congress since 2004, and Barr, a Lexington attorney, are in a rematch for the seat. Barr lost by less than 700 votes two years ago in a race that was no less heated.

Chandler will spend Monday traveling with Democrat elected officials, including Governor Steve Beshear. The group's bus tour will begin in Lexington at the Fayette County Democratic Party headquarters and end with an evening rally in Chandler's hometown of Versailles.

Barr begins Election Eve stopping at popular breakfast spots in Winchester. He will visit Estill, Madison, Woodford and Scott Counties before a rally at his Lexington headquarters.
