Bevin Campaign Statement on Bluegrass Poll

Today, on the heals of winning the KSR debate, the Bevin for Kentucky campaign announced it has placed a seven-figure media buy to push the campaign's message in the final weeks. The latest Bluegrass Poll shows the race is a virtual tie.

The following is a statement from campaign manager, Ben Hartman:

"We feel confident that Matt Bevin is winning this race. Democrats have abandoned the idea of selling their liberal Frankfort insider candidate and have doubled-down on negative attacks to no avail. Despite the fact that outside groups have spent millions of dollars trying to smear Matt's image, the poll remains virtually unchanged. 

"From spending to coal to Christian conservative values, Jack Conway is wrong on all the issues that Kentuckians care about. The voters of Kentucky side with businessman Matt Bevin. Kentuckians do not want to see more of the same in Frankfort.

"Today, the Bevin campaign announced a seven-figure statewide ad buy to push back on the negative ads that have been running against Matt. When Matt's message reaches the masses voters will realize there's a better choice for Governor, conservative Matt Bevin."
