Daniel……Kentucky Governor 2011: Incumbent Steve Beshear (D-KY) leads State Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer (R-KY) by 7 Points in first look at the Governor Race 2011; Beshear 27-Point in Democratic Primary over potential Challenger Greg Stumbo (D-KY)

Hello Folks!

I know it’s very, very, very early but the Lexington Herald-Leader who also put up Kentucky Primary Numbers for the 2010 Senate Race had a first look at the Kentucky Governor Race in 2011 and finds Incumbent Governor Steve Beshear (D-KY) holding a 7-Point lead over State Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer (R-KY).

Beshear also holds a 27-Point lead over State Senator Greg Stumbo (D-KY) who could challenge him in a Primary.

Kentucky (The Bluegrass State) is among three States who are holding Governor Races next year. The others are Mississippi (Open, Barbour is Term-Limited) and Louisiana (Jindal likely running for Re-Election)

Analysis:

I think now “The Dog” should know why I want Grayson to lose against Paul come May 18th.

Grayson would be a much, much stronger Candidate than Farmer and could beat Beshear.
One other Candidate who is also looking at this Race is U. S. Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY 1).

He, he, he…..I kinda figure that one out Daniel!
