With a little more than a week to go until Election Day, tempers are flaring in the race for governor, and Republican Matt Bevin brought some sharp elbows and questionable claims to Sunday night’s debate against Democrat Jack Conway.

The debate, sponsored by Eastern Kentucky University and the League of Women Voters, was the second-to-last time the candidates will share the same stage before voters go to the polls.

Bevin, who has trailed in every public and private poll conducted during the race, appeared eager to go on the attack Sunday night, repeatedly accusing Conway of lying about positions Conway attributed to Bevin on health care and early childhood education.
