PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Governor Fletcher and his Democratic opponent Steve Beshear have put casinos at the forefront of their campaigns.
Fletcher today launched his "No Casinos Tour" in Pikeville, Kentucky.
Fifty-four-year-old John Cleveland of Letcher County says it's insulting that the campaigns are focusing on casinos. Cleveland says the candidates' focus should be on mountaintop removal, health care and the climate.
Fletcher has taken a stand against expanding gambling beyond Kentucky's race tracks. Beshear favors allowing voters to decide whether to change the state constitution to allow casinos.
