Gubernatorial debate: Gov. Matt Bevin vs. AG Andy Beshear

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Tuesday night supporters lined the street on UK’s campus ahead of the gubernatorial debate.

Governor Matt Bevin and Attorney General Andy Beshear began the debate at 7 p.m.

The two gubernatorial candidates faced off in a heated debate at the Singletary Center for the Arts.

Some popular topics: pensions, healthcare, public education funding and abortion. These were just of the few topics in the vicious, hour long debate.

“If I am re-elected I will continue to fight for this state like I would fight for my own family and I will defend the commonwealth of Kentucky on every stage the way I defended this nation when I wore her uniform thirty years ago,” said Bevin in his closing statements.

“I want to be a governor for all Kentucky families that fights for each and everyone one of you democrats, republicans, or independents. That believes that all of our families should be treated with decency and respect and actually shows that example as your governor,” said Beshear in his closing statements.

Bevin ended by asking the crowd if they wanted to move forward with him or backwards with Beshear.

Beshear ended by saying the choice is either a bully, Bevin, or a governor who will fight for all Kentucky families.

The polls open on Tuesday, November 5th.
