Incumbent Governor Matt Bevin is taking on Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear for office.

If Bevin wins, he could become the first Republican to win consecutive terms as governor.

This past weekend Governor Matt Bevin crossed west to east throughout the state canvassing votes. Monday Bevin wrapped up his campaign with President Donald Trump in Lexington.

"But we need your help. This ticket I just described is the most diverse to be ever put forward. Black, white, Hispanic, male, female, rural, urban, born in this state, not born in this state, this is the face of Kentucky. It is the face of America and I am asking you tomorrow to go to the polls and vote straight Republican," said Bevin.

We caught up with Governor Bevin's running mate Ralph Alvarado, who is feeling confident in the campaign.

"Like I said for me it's anxiety and I'll tell you the anxiety isn't about losing, but people have put a lot of investment into these campaigns, a lot of money, a lot of volunteers. It's like being a running back that's handed the ball you don't want to score for yourself you want to score for the team. and so that's where the anxiety comes in. You want to put in the results for the people who have put in the time and the effort for you," said Alvarado.
