Beshear and Conway Campaign

Stops in Trigg, Christian, Todd, and Logan

Steve Beshear and Jack Conway stopped in Hopkinsville at noon today to campaign. Appearing at the Hopkinsville Community College Beshear spoke about the connection between having good jobs and having a skilled workforce to fill them. Beshear said that to gain new industry we must have a skilled workforce and the facilities to train them.

Beshear stated that under a Beshear Administration that the proposed Health and Human Services Building for HCC would become a reality. Beshear and Conway were greeted by local leaders, educators, farmers and a number of employees from United States Tobacco. I would guess that there were over 80 people in attendance.

Local Legislators including Rep. John Tilley who introduced Conway, along with Sen. Joey Pendleton were traveling with the group. Former Reps. Ramsey Morris, Jim Bruce, and John Adams were also in attendance.

Conway and Beshear made stops in Calloway Co. and Trigg Co. before heading to Hopkinsville. Todd Co. and Logan Co. were the next stops for Beshear and Conway.

All area media was on hand and I believe this could very well push the Democrats to victory in Trigg, Christian, Todd, and Logan. I am personally glad they came because I did not want to have to tour alone along the Hwy 68 corridor.
