Beshear Attacks Bevin At Debate Over Casino Suicide Comments

(Louisville, KY) - Democratic challenger Andy Beshear is holding Republican incumbent Matt Bevin's feet to the fire over comments linking casinos to suicides. 

The two battled through a third debate Saturday at Bellarmine University in Louisville.

Beshear said Bevin often makes false claims, such as saying that someone commits suicide on a casino floor every night. Bevin denied ever making the comment.

Later reports showed audio of the governor making the comments during a radio interview in July. 

Beshear is proposing that 100-percent of tax money from expanded gaming be used to supplement Kentucky's pension system. Bevin opposes the use of gambling money to support pensions.
