Barbour Headlining KY GOV Fundraiser

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) will headline a June 16 fundraiser for Kentucky GOP gubernatorial nominee and state Senate President David Williams, the Williams campaign announced Thursday.

Barbour served as chairman of the Republican Governors Association in the 2010 election cycle.

Williams advanced to a general election matchup with Gov. Steve Beshear (D) Tuesday, winning a primary characterized by a smaller than anticipated margin over Phil Moffett (R), who ran as a Tea Party candidate. Turnout in the race was very low.

Beshear, meanwhile, ran unopposed on the Democratic side and heads into the general election as the early front-runner. He's made a three-week $90,000 television ad buy beginning next week in the Louisville, Lexington and Owensboro cable markets, cn|2 reports. Beshear begins the general election with a significant cash on hand advantage over Williams.
