Beshear campaigns @ BG Spencer’s Coffee: supporters flood downtown
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Wasting no time after winning the primary election, Incumbent Governor Andy Beshear & Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman are burning rubber to campaign across the Commonwealth.
Traveling to Paducah, Owensboro, and finally Bowling Green all in one day, the incumbent governor is campaigning in 10 different cities in three days.
A crowd of supporters spilled out of Downtown Bowling Green’s Spencer’s Coffee, eager to help Beshear accomplish this goal: “Four more years!”
When News 40 asked Beshear what his specific message is for South Central Kentucky, he replied, “Well, certainly in Bowling Green let’s keep this thing rolling. We announced what was then the largest investment in the history of Bowling Green with Tyson and then a couple of months later envisioned the second-largest investment in the history of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. And it came right here to Bowling Green. We are seeing more jobs, new jobs, jobs of the future, more than this area has seen in 20 years in the last three years. What this is doing is creating a better life in this area where the kids that grew up here, no matter how big they dream, can stay near home, achieve, raise a family, and do it in any field they can consider”
Beshear will face off against Republican candidate Daniel Cameron in November’s general election.
