GOP Group Attacks Beshear, Who Faces Growing Criticism for No-Show Strategy

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is being criticized by political opponents and the press on the campaign trail this week.

The Ohio-based group Restoring America has released three ads in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams with two slamming Beshear for job losses and not taking a position on busing in Jefferson County Public Schools.

The organization has spent a hefty amount to broadcast its television ads in the state’s major markets to aid Williams, who is struggling to keep pace with the governor in campaign contributions.

The governor is also being heavily criticized by political observers in the media for either skipping debates with his opponents or turning down opportunities to discuss the race in general.
