FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- With a huge lead in the polls, Governor Steve Beshear is increasing the number of joint appearances with fellow Democratic candidates running for Kentucky's down-ballot offices in the November 8 general election.

The latest will be a fundraiser in Louisville Monday night for Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway, who is facing a challenge from Republican Todd P'Pool, a county prosecutor from Madisonville.

Recent polls have shown Beshear leading his chief opponent, Republican David Williams, by 25 to 30 percentage points -- a lead that that could either provide a coattail effect for down-ballot Democrats or suppress voter turnout, making the Democrats more vulnerable to upsets.

The governor's race tops a ballot that includes candidates for agriculture commissioner, attorney general, auditor, secretary of state, and treasurer. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
