Former Governor Endorses Beshear

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Former Governor Brereton Jones has
endorsed former Lieutenant Governor Steve Beshear in the Democratic
gubernatorial primary.
Jones says Beshear is his choice out of the seven Democrats in
the race.
Beshear has made expanding gambling the central issue of his
candidacy. He says it could generate 500 (M) million dollars a year
in additional state revenue.
Jones now serves as chairman of the Kentucky Equine Education
Project. The group has called for lawmakers to allow a referendum
on a constitutional amendment to allow casino gambling at
racetracks.
Jones says Kentuckians should be allowed to vote on a
constitutional amendment.
