They hope to be the next governor and lieutenant governor.
Kentucky Senator David Williams and Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer made several stops in the region.
Handshakes were the theme.
Williams and Farmer are taking the big race one step at a time.
"Before we worry about November, we have to win the primary," said Williams.
The pair made several stops in Laurel and Knox County.
Farmer, a Clay County native says its good to be home.
"I'm first a country boy...an eastern Kentucky boy at heart. That's the people I represent as well as the rest of the people in Kentucky but eastern Kentucky people mean a lot to me," said Farmer.
The duo spent time talking to voters at every stop.
Williams says job creation is a priority.
"We are in a time period were people are hurting. They want to talk about the job prospects and what our plans are that allows them to get back to work," said Williams.
Another issue the pair plans to tackle is the growing drug problem.
Farmer says he supports a bill that's getting a lot of attention that makes people have a prescription in order to buy medicines containing pseudoephedrine-a key ingredient used to make meth.
Williams and Farmer say they plan to have several stops in the region before the campaign is over.
Williams and Farmer will finish the day in Whitley County at a fundraiser.
