LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial nominee David Williams is keeping up his blistering criticism of Governor Steve Beshear in a final campaign push that's taking him to seven cities around Kentucky.

Williams started an election-eve fly-around Monday in Louisville, where he said the Democratic incumbent has no plan to create jobs. The challenger accused Beshear of misleading voters about a bleak outlook for the state budget.

Beshear, who is seeking a second term, has widely touted his budget-balancing credentials amid a struggling economy.

Williams is making stops in Lexington, Hazard, Owensboro, Paducah, and Bowling Green, before wrapping up his campaign with a rally in his hometown of Burkesville.

Beshear, who has a commanding lead in the polls, is holding an evening rally in Louisville.

The other candidate in the race is independent Gatewood Galbraith.
