Democratic gubernatorial nominee Steve Beshear is proposing a health care plan that would expand insurance coverage and curb health costs .
Beshear said on Aug. 7 that if he's elected, he would extend health coverage to thousands of uninsured children in Kentucky.
He's challenging Republican Governor Ernie Fletcher in the upcoming election.
Beshear has touted casino gambling in Kentucky as a way to increase revenue for his plans.
He estimates the venture would generate at least $500-million a year.
Governor Fletcher has come out strongly against casino gaming.
