FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is comfortably ahead at the final turn of the state's gubernatorial race even though his term has been dominated by job losses and budget cuts.Polls show Beshear holding a double-digit lead over Republican challenger David Williams, the longtime state Senate president. Independent candidate Gatewood Galbraith is also on the ballot.Beshear holds a huge fundraising edge, and Williams has struggled to make up ground after a bruising GOP primary battle.Beshear on Tuesday is poised to become the second Democrat to win a U.S. governor's race this year. Earl Ray Tomblin won West Virginia's special election Oct. 4. Republicans held onto the Louisiana governor's office last month and are expected to do the same in Mississippi on Tuesday.
