Williams takes parting shot at Beshear as Republicans urge supporters to get out votes
11/07/2011 05:25 PM
Republican candidate for governor David Williams has tried to make criticism — any criticism — of Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear stick.
On the final day before the election, Williams pointed to the budget and said Beshear is hiding the truth from Kentuckians. He pointed to a statement by the governor’s budget director, Mary Lassiter, to the Courier-Journal’s Tom Loftus on Sunday in which Lassiter said she didn’t know “when the administration would announce its plans” to account for $189 million in promised savings.
Beshear made that deal with the legislature to find those savings, mostly through contracts with managed care companies to take over the administration of Medicaid services across the state.
Meanwhile, top Republican leaders are urging their supporters not to believe the polls from this fall — as the real polls open at 6 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday.
