    I'm glad that Steve Beshear won the race for governor, because it sounds like he is going to help Kentuckians more than Fletcher.

    I am so proud of Kentucky for electing the right man for the job. It was a much closer race than I thought it should be. But now KY can get on the road to recovery.
