Tim Coleman's Reaction to Election Day

The primary race for attorney general has some local ties. Tim coleman is the Commonwealth's attorney and former county attorney in Butler County.

WBKO talked with him before he voted, and Coleman said he feels confident in his chance to become Kentucky's next attorney general.

Coleman believes Kentucky needs a prosecutor in the attorney general's seat to fight Kentucky's war on drugs and Internet predators.

Coleman also said name recognition in other parts of the state has been a challenge to overcome. Though, he doesn't feel this is the case in Morgantown, Ky., because chances are ... If you live in Morgantown you know Tim Coleman.

"Timothy R. Coleman," asked one voter. "Everybody here is going to vote for Coleman. They know his uncles and brothers."

"I'm hoping he wins, and I think the majority of the county thinks that."

With what seems like the entire county behind Coleman, one would think votes are easy to come by, but Coleman is the only candidate in the race for attorney general from a rural area.

And being from a ruaral area, Coleman said getting his name out across Kentucky has been a challenege.

"We just had to work a little harder than they have, hopefully that will show up," Coleman said.

Coleman and his wife have been traveling the state shaking new hands and explaining his ideas.

"Any given day we've probably been to three to four different stops," Coleman said.

But it's not his campaigning statewide that's getting him Morgantown votes. According to residents, Coleman's work as the current Commonwealth's attorney and former county attorney has proven he's qualified for the job.

"I think everybody has been impressed with Tim," a voter said.

Eventhough Coleman expects low voter turnout, he's depending on a county that's supported his mission and his family for such a long time.

"This is statewide, I think it helps when you have local people and local families involved," Coleman said.

Coleman and his wife said they were going to Lexington to await the results of the election.
