Beshear Leads Democratic Tour Through Northern Ky.

Gov. Steve Beshear told supporters in Newport Wednesday he not only wants to win re-election, he wants to win by a landslide. “We’re going to win this race, but I don’t want to just win this race, I want to beat the socks of this guy,” Beshear said. “We need to beat him bad, because we need to send a strong message out here, and that message is this: ‘We don’t want the kind of dysfunctional politics going on in Washington D.C. right now.”
Polls show Beshear ahead of GOP candidate and state Senate President David Williams by as much as 31 points.
