Gov. Andy Beshear, D-Kentucky, is hitting the road days after the primary election wrapped up with stops across Kentucky.
Beshear’s bus tour has planned stops in Paducah, Henderson, Owensboro, Elizabethtown, and Bowling Green on Friday where he is highlighting his record of bringing new jobs and record economic investment in every part of Kentucky while delivering on campaign promises like legalizing medical marijuana and sports betting, according to the campaign.
The first-term Governor has record popularity; he ranks in the top five governors in the nation with a 63 percent approval rating, according to Morning Consult.
Taking a page from the Obama 2012 playbook, Beshear wasted little time this week in putting out his first digital ad and starting his General Election campaign a day after a long, contentious, and expensive Republican primary.
Beshear will face Republican nominee Attorney General Daniel Cameron in the General Election.
