KENTUCKY DEMOCRATIC PARTY ANNOUNCES “TESTED, TRUSTED, TOUGH” STATEWIDE BUS TOUR

 Ahead in the polls, Governor Steve Beshear to lead Democratic slate on campaign swing across the Commonwealth

 FRANKFORT – With Election Day less than a month away, Governor Steve Beshear will be hitting the road over the next two weeks to lead Kentucky’s Democratic slate of candidates on a statewide bus tour. The “Tested, Trusted, Tough” tour will highlight Governor Beshear’s accomplishments and vision for the next four years, while also providing regular Kentuckians an opportunity to hear from the entire Democratic slate.

Governor Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear, Attorney General Jack Conway and Treasurer Todd Hollenbach will be joined by Jerry Abramson, Adam Edelen, Alison Lundergan Grimes, and Robert Farmer, the respective Democratic nominees for lieutenant governor, auditor, secretary of state, and commissioner of agriculture, as the tour kicks off Sunday in Lexington. From there, the tour will embark on its statewide journey, reaching cities and towns across the Commonwealth.

Please note: Not all candidates, including Governor Beshear and Mayor Abramson, will be appearing at every stop. Once the tour commences, the KDP will be sending out daily press guidance, including that day’s candidate lineup.
