One poll says former Cat Richie Farmer a legit competitor for Governor

Richie Farmer

A new Poll shows that Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear should have no problem getting the Democratic party nomination for reelection next year. But the poll showed that he could face a challenge from Republican Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer, according to a report in the Lexington Herald-Leader. Farmer is a former University of Kentucky basketball player. The poll was taken from a survey of 500 likely Democratic voters, and Beshear was only 7 percentage points ahead of Farmer, the paper reported.
