Louisville businessman Matt Bevin appeared to hold off Agriculture Commissioner James Comer by 83 votes Tuesday night in the Republican gubernatorial primary, a cliffhanger that likely won't be ultimately decided for days. With 100 percent of the vote in, Comer and Bevin both had 32. 9 percent of the vote. Hal Heiner finished third with 27. 1 percent and Will T. Scott was last with 7. 2 percent. Battling the other Republicans and claims by a former girlfriend that he abused her while they were in college, Comer was in third place for much of the night before gaining ground in Western Kentucky. "For those of you in the media who thought Republican politics in the state of Kentucky was boring, think again," Bevin said, speaking at 10:15 p. m. at the Galt House in Louisville. In the speech, he called for repealing Common Core, passing legislation that would allow people to work in union businesses without paying union dues or fees, and the dismantling of the kynect insurance exchange in 2016. RELATED: Conway easily... Bevin, along with running mate Jenean Hampton, made his push in the waning weeks of the campaign as Comer and Heiner squabbled. Comer accused Heiner's campaign of trying to push.
Brandon Oldham, 30, of the 2100 block of W. Oak Street, was arrested early Wednesday and is charged with murder. Police say Oldham beat victim Edward Vinson, 49, with his hands before dousing him in lighter fluid and setting him afire. Lloyd and Oldham worked together, police said. Daughters of the murder victim said they didn't know Oldham personally but are relieved that he is now in custody. "No one deserves this," Vinson's daughter Semone Sales said at a Wednesday news conference. Sales, 19, who last saw her father on Easter, said that although they did not have a close, personal relationship, she was still in frequent contact with Vinson. "He let me know that he cared, and let me know that he was trying," she said. Sales said she found out about Oldham's arrest on the news and learned of her father's death from her mother. Sales said she remembers seeing the suspect a few months ago when she was with family outdoors around the neighborhood, but did not recognize his face on the news. "He came up to us at one of our parties, but I didn't know him personally," she said. "I would just like to know why someone would do something like that," Sales said.
The chorus of beeps and honks from idling vehicles in downtown Louisville may be about to crescendo, as numerous major construction projects move off the drawing board onto street construction sites. The omnipresent Ohio River Bridges Project will disrupt traffic for at least another year, but additional wholesale construction in and near the central business district — where 70,000 people work and several million visitors set foot every year... Still, even though the orange cones and construction barrels blocking lanes and intersections can create traffic quagmires, there seems to be a prevailing sentiment that the short-term inconveniences will be offset by long-term economic... Downtown traffic will probably get worse when ground is broken — tentatively scheduled for January — for the nearly $300 million Omni Hotel project just northeast of Third Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard. In addition, work is scheduled to begin in summer 2016 on the $180 million makeover of the Kentucky International Convention Center, which will be closed for two years to accommodate construction. While work winds down on the Ohio River Bridges Project, with construction centered along Interstate 65 just east of downtown, a half-dozen or so other center city developments will be proceeding on various schedules next year.
