Dec. 6, 2018, 11:20 a.m.

Former Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen (D) endorsed state Attorney General Andy Beshear (D) on Wednesday. “Former Gov. Steve Beshear (D), Andy Beshear’s father, appointed Luallen as Kentucky’s 56th lieutenant governor in 2014 and she served in that capacity through Dec. 8, 2015. She was also elected as the state’s auditor of public accounts for two consecutive terms, serving from 2003 to 2011.” (Frankfort State-Journal)

LOANS. Gov. Matt Bevin’s (R) “2015 campaign committees have started to pay him back for the loans he made to finance his campaign for governor. Bevin personally loaned $4.12 million to his primary and election campaign committees in 2015 … Since then, Bevin has kept those committees active and they have continued to raise contributions and spend money. Reports these committees filed with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance this week show they raised a modest $149,350 during the past year. And they spent $198,112. The largest part of that spending was $100,000 the committees paid to Bevin on Jan. 3. This was the first payment the committees made on the loans from Bevin. The Bevin 2015 campaign committees report having a cash balance of $714,308, with no debts beyond what they owe to Bevin. Bevin announced in late August he will run for re-election in 2019, but he has declined to say whether he will run again with Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton. He must choose a running mate and register his slate with the election registry before his campaign can raise or spend money for the 2019 election.” (Louisville Courier-Journal)
