Late last week we covered an Anzalone Liszt Grove poll (released 4/18; 500 KY likely Democratic primary voters) from former state Auditor Adam Edelen that gave Attorney General Andy Beshear a comfortable 43-23-22% lead over he and state House Minority Leader Rocky Adkins (D-Sandy Hook).
Now, Mr. Beshear counters, releasing his own Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group survey (4/15-18; 601 KY likely Democratic gubernatorial primary voters) that finds him holding a similar, but stronger, 44-17-16% margin despite what the Beshear campaign claims is an Edelen 5:1 media expenditure advantage when including independent group spending. The Kentucky primary is May 21st. The winner then takes on Gov. Matt Bevin (R) in what will be a competitive 2019 general election.
