Via press release from Beshear campaign
Gov. Andy Beshear’s campaign filing 15 days before the May 16th primary will show the campaign has raised $6.95 million for his reelection campaign, with nearly $340,000 raised in the last reporting period, or an average of over $20,000 raised per day.
“Governor Beshear is one of the most popular governors in the country, with support from Republicans, Democrats and Independents – and these latest fundraising numbers reflect his sky-high popularity,” said campaign manager Eric Hyers. “Governor Beshear has a proven track record of getting results for Kentucky families by growing our economy to support good-paying jobs and delivering on promises like the Brent Spence Bridge project – with no tolls. While the GOP candidates continue to fight in an expensive and messy primary, Governor Beshear will continue working hard to improve the lives of all Kentuckians.”
During his time in office, Gov. Beshear has removed barriers to health care coverage and relaunched kynect to expand quality care to more Kentuckians, restored voting rights for more than 180,000 Kentuckians, and invested in public schools, high speed internet and clean drinking water. In this last legislative session, he signed into law two of the biggest legislative priorities that he campaigned on in 2019, legalizing both medical cannabis and sports betting in the Commonwealth. The governor has also led Kentucky to historic economic growth with nearly 46,000 more jobs than before the pandemic, and provided strong, steady leadership during three of the most difficult years in Kentucky with COVID and deadly natural disasters.
