(POLITICO) — According to an article from Politico, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are expected to travel to Kentucky to stump for Gov. Matt Bevin in the days before the election.

Trump is expected to be in Kentucky the day before Election Day and Pence is expected to appear on November 1, according to Politico.

The article says the details of the rallies are still being worked out.

White House spokespersons did not respond to a request for comment.

LEX 18 has also reached out to the Bevin campaign for details. We are awaiting a response.

The Beshear/Coleman campaign released their response to the report.

"This race is about right vs. wrong — and there’s nothing that will make Kentuckians forget how Matt Bevin’s attacked public education, tried to illegally cut pensions, and insulted teachers," said Beshear/Coleman Spokesperson Sam Newton. "Under Bevin, too many families across Kentucky are making less every year, and Bevin is still refusing to support protections for people with pre-existing health conditions. Working families are ready for a governor who will be in their corner and Andy Beshear has proven he’ll work with anyone to get the job done. That’s why Andy is gaining support from across party lines, including the endorsement of a sitting Republican State Senator and the Fraternal Order of Police.”
