FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s two major party candidates for governor are not taking a day off for Independence Day.
Republican nominee Matt Bevin and Democratic nominee Jack Conway will be traveling the state on Saturday to participate in a variety of Independence Day celebrations as both seek to become Kentucky’s next governor. Incumbent Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
Bevin and Conway are scheduled to participate in the Campbellsville Fourth of July celebration, which includes speeches and a parade. Bevin will then walk in the Fort Mitchell Parade at noon while Conway will walk in the Lexington Fourth of July parade at 2 p.m.
The two candidates are scheduled to appear together on July 23 at the Measure the Candidates forum at the Kentucky Farm Bureau.
