One day before election, Kentucky's U.S. Senate candidates still campaigning

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky's U.S. Senate candidates were still campaigning one day before the election.

Senator Rand Paul was making one final push in Louisville Monday.

The incumbent is scheduled to hold a rally Monday afternoon at Bowman Field in Louisville. He's in the city for part of his "Defend Kentucky" tour, which started this weekend.

Paul is scheduled to hold a second rally at 1:15 p.m. at the Elizabethtown Flying Service. He's seeking reelection to the U.S. Senate.

Meanwhile, democratic opponent Jim Gray got some of his party's power to back him in the hours before the election.

Mayor Greg Fischer, former Governor Steve Beshear and Senator John Yarmuth joined Gray for a campaign event in Louisville Monday morning.

The Lexington Mayor says he's the best choice for the U.S. Senate seat because he knows how to stop gridlock and get things done in Washington, D.C.

But Gray says he needs help from Louisville to do that.

"Well, it's real important that we get a good turnout in Louisville," Gray said. "We know that in many respects Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky, so it's the center of gravity. That's why I've said every vote counts -- and get out the vote."

Gray says if he is elected, his main goal would be increasing job opportunities for Kentuckians.
