Governor Fletcher Shows Support For Beshear

After the votes were tallied, current Governor Ernie Fletcher was ready to show his support for the man taking over the reigns.

In his concession speech, Fletcher explained the voters have made up their minds and he accepts that decision.

He said he wanted his supporters to now stand behind Beshear.

"A few moments ago, I called Steve Beshear to applaud him on his vigorous campaign and to congratulate him. Then I told him I'd do everything I can to make his transition smooth," Governor Ernie Fletcher said.

Fletcher also says he admires Beshear's persistence in running for governor 20 years ago and finally receiving the position last night.
