Kentucky’s campaign showdown for governor boils down to stark differences in vision and values. Democratic candidate and incumbent Governor, Andy Beshear is looking to remain in office for his second 4-year term this November 7th but is being challenged by the Republican front-runner, and current Attorney General, Daniel Cameron.

Beshear has framed himself as a governor focused on kitchen table issues, from trumpeting new infrastructure funding to repair a crucial bridge between Kentucky and Ohio to touting the state’s lowest-ever unemployment figures.  The Governor pledged to redouble his push for higher teacher pay and universal access to early childhood education if he wins reelection, offering a glowing assessment of Kentucky’s future that he said was fueled by record economic development gains that have occurred on his watch.

Daniel Cameron hammered at Beshear for his actions during the COVID-19 pandemic and for the incumbent’s stance on issues related to transgender youth. Cameron also stressed his staunch opposition to abortion, saying he wants to “make sure that our most cherished and valued asset, our unborn, have every opportunity to reach their fullest and God-given potential.” Cameron promises to only appoint members to the Kentucky Board of Education who understand the needs of teachers, refuse to allow our students to be indoctrinated, and welcome parents’ involvement. Attorney General Cameron says he does not appoint members who favor bureaucracy and woke virtue-signaling over the success of our kids.

The time is rapidly approaching here in the state as for which candidate will receive the majority vote on November 7th. The contrasting visions are a key factor as for who voters think deserve the position, and your vote matters. Find below a link to the most recently updated polling location list for Paducah.
