LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Coal Association says it will webcast presentations by Democratic and Republican nominees for governor and attorney general during the group’s annual meeting next week in Lexington.

Republican Matt Bevin and his Democratic opponent in the governor’s race, Jack Conway, will meet with the association’s membership on Thursday. Also appearing will be the Democrat Andy Beshear and Republican Whitney Westerfield, who are running for attorney general.

The coal group’s president, Bill Bissett, said in a statement Friday that it’s common for trade groups to meet privately with candidates for public office but that his organization decided to make the video available online to the public after receiving media requests.
