Democrats allege coordination by Williams campaign

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Democratic Party has filed a
complaint with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance charging
that Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams has
coordinated and cooperated with an outside political group that's
paying for TV ads.
Democratic Chairman Dan Logsdon said Williams' father-in-law,
Russell Springs businessman Terry Stephens, has been the only
contributor to the Republican group Restoring America that is
airing ads supporting Williams and attacking Democratic Gov. Steve
Beshear.
Logsdon said that suggests coordination, leading him to ask for
an immediate investigation.
Williams and independent candidate Gatewood Galbriath are
running against Beshear in the Nov. 8 general election.
Polls show Beshear with a huge lead. Williams, his nearest
competitor, is trialing by some 30 percentage points.
The Williams campaign didn't immediately respond to the
allegation.
