Several Candidates Make Last Minute Campaign Stops To Eastern Kentucky

Several gubernatorial candidates are making last minute campaign stops in Eastern Kentucky.

On the Republican side, Governor Fletcher and Billy Harper both made lunchtime stops in London Monday. Harper and Anne Northup both have said they're the only candidate that can win the general election. Governor Fletcher says his chances of winning a second term in November are good.

"I'm the only one that has a record to run on and I think that bodes well for winning in November," Fletcher said.

"We are the one candidate that can bring unity to the party and not only win the primary, but win the general election this fall," Harper said.

Former U.S. Congresswoman Anne Northup is also challenging Ernie Fletcher. She was in the London area Friday to support a group upset over a new asphalt plant.

Democratic Lieutenant Governor Candidate Greg Stumbo is also spending his last day before the election campaigning.

Stumbo says his and governor candidate Bruce Lunsford's campaign started in Eastern Kentucky so he wants it to wrap up in Eastern Kentucky. He spent most of the day in Pike County convincing people to go to the polls Tuesday.

"It is important for people to go vote. We're just asking people to go vote. We're obviously hoping they'll vote for us, but even if they don't, I think it's a good thing to at least ask people to go vote. I think that's part of being a good citizen is getting out and exercising your right to vote," Stumbo said.

Stumbo says he will vote in Prestonsburg Tuesday morning then he will be in Louisville Tuesday night with Lunsford when the ballots are counted.
