Democrat Steve Beshear Re-Elected As Kentucky Governor
Even with economic uncertainty and a challenge from Republican David Williams and independent Gatewood Galbraith in a conservative state, Democrat Steve Beshear was re-elected governor of Kentucky.
Williams, the state Senate president, and Galbraith, an attorney making his fifth run for governor, campaigned on claims that Beshear wasn’t doing enough to create jobs in a state where one in 10 workers is unemployed.
Democrats have lost only two Kentucky governor’s races since 1950, and pre-election polls had Beshear poised to keep the streak going with a double-digit lead over Williams heading into an election where some projected that three-fourths of the state’s registered voters might stay away from the polls.Click here for reuse options!
