Trump, Pence Plan 11th-Hour Rescue of Kentucky Governor Bevin

Donald Trump and Mike Pence are planning separate appearances in Kentucky during the final stage of the re-election campaign of GOP Governor Matt Bevin.

Bevin is in a very tough race against Democrat state Attorney General Andy Beshear, the son of a popular former governor. The latest survey by the RNC shows Bevin up by just 3 points in a state Donald Trump won by 30 in 2016.

So Bevin is grasping onto Trump’s coattails and hanging on for dear life.


Trump is expected to travel to the state to stump for Gov. Matt Bevin the day before Election Day, according to two people familiar with the planning for the event. Pence, meanwhile, is slated to appear in the state on Nov. 1. Final details for the rallies are still being worked out.

White House spokespersons did not respond to a request for comment.
