The November gubernatorial election is getting closer and the two candidates in the Kentucky race are certainly doing their share of campaigning and hoping for some big names to back them.
Governor Fletcher will soon get a boost from U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell.
The influential senator expects to spend part of the August congressional recess campaigning for Fletcher.
The incumbent governor is trying to rebound from his one-time indictment in a hiring scandal.
Fletcher's Democrat challenger, Steve Beshear, is also expected to get support from some heavy hitters as well.
