In a cam­paign stop at a Dairy Queen over the week­end, busi­ness­man Matt Bev­in (R) said he’d “tweak” Medi­caid ex­pan­sion if elec­ted, which, if an ac­cur­ate char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of his words, would be a sig­ni­fic­ant de­par­ture from pri­or state­ments. (Phar­macy Choice) Bev­in pre­vi­ously said the state needs to ad­dress is­sues with Medi­caid ex­pan­sion, after first say­ing earli­er this year he would seek to “end” it im­me­di­ately.

OUT OF THE FRAY. State At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Jack Con­way (D) “said he won’t ap­point a spe­cial pro­sec­utor ‘at this time’ to pur­sue a crim­in­al case of of­fi­cial mis­con­duct against Row­an County Clerk Kim Dav­is, des­pite a re­quest from the Row­an County at­tor­ney. In a brief state­ment, Con­way’s of­fice said he will de­fer to U.S. Dis­trict Judge Dav­id Bun­ning…” (Lex­ing­ton Her­ald-Lead­er)

PRIME TIME. Bev­in, Con­way, and Drew Curtis (I) will take part in their first tele­vised de­bate next Tues­day. (Cin­cin­nati En­quirer)
