Hillary Clinton backs Beshear in fight over Gov. Bevin's university cuts

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hillary Clinton is jumping into the fight between Kentucky's governor and attorney general over education funding.

Clinton's campaign released a statement Tuesday saying Gov. Matt Bevin's cuts to education are shortsighted, wrong and may be illegal.

Earlier this month, Bevin issued an executive order to cut funding to public colleges and universities by 4.5 percent. 

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced Monday he's suing Gov. Bevin.

The Governor's office says the lawsuit is an attempt to divert attention from the corruption and personnel problems in the Attorney General's office.
