“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from so many who have donated to our campaign,” said Beshears. “Campaigns are expensive endeavors and I am so blessed to have so many people who saw fit to contribute their treasure to our cause. We will be frugal with these contributions as we deliver our positive message about growing our economy, protecting our state institutions, keeping taxes low, and strengthening our education system”.
With $106,464.95 cash on hand the campaign is keeping its pledge to be lean with its budget. Over 80% of the contributions came from counties within District 7 and only $2500 came from the candidate himself. Beshears was the first candidate Republican or Democrat in the race to qualify by petition for the August primary ballot.
