Chandler says issues clear, strategies differ

By BETH CRACE State Journal Staff Writer Published:

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ben Chandler said Wednesday economic development, health care and education are the three issues driving this year's governor's race.

But, Chandler said, that doesn't mean he and his opponent, Republican Ernie Fletcher, feel the same way about them.

"There are real differences between the candidates along those lines," Chandler said to Frankfort Rotarians during their weekly lunch at the Capital Plaza-Holiday Inn.

Chandler told the group he and Fletcher, a U.S. representative from Lexington, differ in their approaches to generating more jobs, improving health care, and providing more money for education.

After a stopoff at the Kentucky League of Sportsmen, Chandler talked with the local Rotary for nearly an hour Wednesday. Fletcher visited the group last month.
