One of the most closely watched races in the country is in Kentucky, where Gov. Matt Bevin is running for re-election against Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear.

The latest Bluegrass Poll has the race at a dead heat with three weeks to go. WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about the race, and how Bevin, whom polls show is the least popular governor in the country, appears to be riding the coattails of Donald Trump, who is far more popular in Kentucky.

Howard Wilkinson is in his 50th year of covering politics on the local, state and national levels.
