SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial nominee David Williams said Tuesday that Beshear's participation in the ceremony in Elizabethtown was out of line with what Kentucky's governor ought to be doing. Williams said he would have merely attended, rather than participate in the event.

Beshear campaign spokesman Matt Erwin is characterizing Williams' comments as "pathetic and desperate."

Williams has been trailing far behind Beshear in polls. Beshear participated in the ceremony with officials from Flex Films, which is building a $180 million plant at Elizabethtown.

The state characterized the event as a blessing ceremony that is
traditional in India for new homes or businesses. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
