Cast as dishonest by critics, Bevin holds fast to his faith
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Republican Matt Bevin says he is guided by his Christian faith while his critics cast him as dishonest in his run for Kentucky governor.
Bevin said his faith held his family together following the 2003 death of his 17-year-old daughter in a car accident. That faith is now the basis for his campaign as he airs TV ads identifying himself as a Christian conservative and defending Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of her religious beliefs.
Democrats say Bevin has a history of not telling the truth, including denying he has property tax problems despite paying penalties for late payments. Bevin said he has paid everything he owes and that Democrats take his comments out of context.
