Swing-county Kentucky voters weigh their choices for governor in a closely watched off-year election
There's an election for governor next month in Kentucky, and voters are trying to decide between Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and Republican Daniel Cameron, the state attorney general
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Republican voter Mark Cook stuck with his party in Kentucky's last election for governor. Next month, he's leaning toward crossing over to support the Democrat he voted against in 2019, Gov. Andy Beshear.
Cook is a steadfast supporter of former President Donald Trump, a Republican, and has only disdain for Democratic President Joe Biden. But Cook views one of the nation's most closely watched off-year elections through a prism firmly grounded in the Bluegrass State. He thinks Beshear, known to many Kentuckians as much by his first name as his last, has been a good steward of the state's economy.
Voters across Kentucky, from Appalachia to the banks of the Mississippi River, are weighing their decision in the Nov. 7 race between Beshear and Republican Daniel Cameron, the state's attorney general. Once again, Warren County, which includes the leafy, fast-growing college town of Bowling Green, looms as a potential swing area.
