LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — Throughout Gov. Matt Bevin's campaign, he has talked about his relationship with Washington D.C. and the White House. As we near Election Day, he's putting those relationships on display.
Earlier this year, President Donald Trump came to Louisville and told people that he is behind the governor. On Thursday, Dr. Ben Carson visited the Commonwealth to show his support of Bevin. Carson is a former presidential candidate and current U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
"I'm here today as Dr. Carson, not as Secretary Carson, very concerned about some of the things going on in our country right now," said Carson. "It's all about presenting the right kinds of opportunities so that all of our people can thrive."
Outside of the Midwest Church of Christ in Louisville, Carson told reporters that he is behind Bevin because he believes the governor is making the right decisions for Kentucky. Carson also highlighted Bevin's relationship with the White House.
"The governor, I've probably seen him more in DC than I've seen him here. I've seen him here a few times too," he said. "I resonate so strongly with him, because he really is focusing on the people. He's not a highly partisan person."
More support is coming for Bevin. On Friday, Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Laurel County and on Monday, President Trump will come to Lexington.
