FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- David Williams has survived a primary election season filled with potential bombshells to capture the Republican nomination for governor in Kentucky and the right to challenge a popular Democratic incumbent in November.
Williams, the often prickly state Senate president, easily defeated Louisville businessman Phil Moffett and Jefferson County Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw on Tuesday. He heads into what is expected to be a rough and tumble general election campaign against a familiar foe in the Capitol, Gov. Steve Beshear.
Williams, an anti-gambling lawmaker, was dealt a particularly troubling setback late in the campaign when a judge unsealed court documents showing he had frequented casinos.
