Governor's Race Comes To Eastern Kentucky

Some people eating breakfast at a Pike county restaurant got a surprise Tuesday morning.

Gubernatorial candidate Steve Beshear and running mate Senator Daniel Mongiardo showed up to meet with them. They are travelling across Eastern Kentucky today, meeting with voters. The candidates talked to restaurant customers about their issues and concerns. The pair say topics like veteran's benefits and coal and energy came up the most.

"One of the problems in government is our leaders don't listen to people, and this type of atmosphere, it's easier to listen to one on one and get ideas of what needs to be done." said Mongiardo.

This was just one of their campaign stops across Eastern Kentucky.
