U.S. Senate candidate Jack Conway has had a very busy week. Today he was in central Kentucky with Governor Steve Beshear by his side speaking with people about the election.

With five days to go until the election, U.S. Senate candidate Jack Conway visited several downtown Lexington restaurants, greeting people on their lunch breaks.

"Say hi to folks and ask for their vote. Fayette County and the 6th Congressional District are gonna be remarkably important in this election so I'm working it hard here today, in and around the 6th Congressional District all day today," says Jack Conway, the democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.

Conway was making his rounds today with a little help from friends, including State Auditor Crit Luallen, and Kentucky's Governor Steve Beshear.

"We're getting great feedback and it's wonderful to have friends with you on the campaign trail, patting you on the back," says Jack Conway.

There are a large number of people Jack Conway says he's trying to reach.

"I'm standing up for civil rights, I'm standing up for women's rights, I'm standing up for the rights of the disabled, I'm standing up for what the seniors need in Kentucky right now, I'm standing up for what veterans need in Kentucky right now, and I'm standing up for students and this is a fight and people say 'Jack, you seem like you're pushing hard'. Heck yes. I'm fighting for the people of Kentucky," says Jack Conway.

Although some polls have Conway behind, he says polls they've taken show this race at a dead heat.

"I know Rand Paul thinks he's right for Kentucky but he's just wrong on the issues and I'm always gonna put the state first. There will be polls all over the board, who knows what they'll say these last few days, but we're gonna run hard to the finish line and we're gonna win the race on Tuesday," says Jack Conway.

As for Jack Conway, he says he'll now be traveling to the western part of the state for the next couple of days.

He says President Bill Clinton will also be making a stop in the state on Monday to support him. His schedule for the day is still in the works.
