By Lydelle Abbott

Nelson County’s votes are in, and Steve Beshear appears to have convinced voters locally that he is right for the job. With 6,572 votes, Beshear, the Democratic challenger for governor, led the way in Nelson County with 62 percent of the vote. Current Governor Ernie Fletcher received 3,971 votes in Nelson County, garnering him 38 percent of the vote.

Local voters followed the same path as the state voters as Beshear also won statewide making him the new incoming governor for the next four years. He will take over in the top state position in January 2008.
