Beshear takes on 2 challengers in televised debate

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear is taking on
two challengers in a Monday night debate that will be aired
statewide on the public television station KET.
The 90-minute faceoff, which begins at 8 p.m. EDT, will give
Republican David Williams and independent Gatewood Galbraith a
second and final opportunity to share a stage with Beshear before
the Nov. 8 election.
Polls show Beshear leading his opponents by more than 30
percentage points in his bid for re-election to a second term.
Besides his lead in the polls, Beshear also holds a huge
fundraising advantage. He has banked more than $10 million
beginning his re-election campaign, at least five times more than
Williams, his nearest competitor.
The race has generated little excitement. Election officials say
turnout could be as low as 25 percent.
