Governor raises $4.8 million for re-election campaign

Gov. Steve Beshear has raised $4.8 million since the beginning of his re-election campaign.

The Kentucky Democrat reported Monday that his campaign had
taken in an additional $1.27 million between Jan. 1 and April 15,
and, after expenses, still has about $3.3 million in the bank.
Beshear is unopposed in the May 17 Democratic primary.

One of three Republicans facing off in a GOP primary race will
challenge Beshear in the fall general election. The GOP candidates
- state Senate President David Williams, Louisville businessman
Phil Moffett and Jefferson County Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw - haven't
yet reported fresh fundraising totals. Neither has independent
candidate Gatewood Galbriath who also will be on the fall ballot.

The deadline for the latest reporting period is Wednesday.
