HIGHLAND HEIGHTS- Governor Steve Beshear told about 125 Democrat supporters on Monday at Northern Kentucky University that even though President Barack Obama will not carry Kentucky on Election Day, he will still win re-election.

Beshear told the crowd that Americans “vote on a general feeling that they develop about candidates. With the president, they have a guy that they can trust, they think that he’s a good guy, they think that he’s an honest guy.”

In contrast, Beshear described Republican nominee Mitt Romney as a candidate who can’t be trusted because Beshear said Romney flip-flops.

“They see a fellow that has changed his position on every issue that has come along,” he said.

Beshear concluded by urging Democrats to work hard campaigning for Democrat candidates in the U.S. House of Representatives as well as the state legislature.
