President Donald Trump and Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin talk during a roundtable in the Roosevelt Room on Jan. 11, 2018.

WVXU's Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about Gov. Matt Bevin's hope that President Trump will come to Kentucky several times to help Bevin's re-election campaign.

Trump is very popular in Kentucky; Bevin's approval ratings are among the lowest of any governor in the country. It is likely Trump will try to help, Wilkinson said, because he does not need to have a GOP governor he supported lose a re-election campaign.
