    • "A new CNN/Time Poll released Thursday shows 50 percent of likely voters in Kentucky support Republican nominee Rand Paul while 43 percent back Democratic nominee Jack Conway in their U.S. Senate race." [Bluegrass Politics]
    • "The (ex-)Rand Paul county coordinator who stomped on a liberal activist's head before a Kentucky Senate debate Monday night would like an apology from her. She started it and was basically asking for it, you see." [Gawker]
    • "Richie Farmer's Department of Agriculture bought eight more new vehicles this month, bringing to 27 the number purchased this year at a cost of about $621,000 during tight budgetary times for the state. State procurement officials in the Finance and Administration Cabinet recently approved the purchase of the eight vehicles, costing about $176,000. But it rejected department requests to buy two more, saying those it sought to replace were not old enough, or have enough mileage, to meet regulatory requirements." [Courier-Journal]
    • "In a surprise turn, the latest SurveyUSA poll reports that Republican Hal Heiner leads Democrat Greg Fischer by seven points in the race for Louisville mayor — a 13 point swing from the last poll, conducted in late September. With less than a week until Election Day, the poll is also the first time either candidate has received more than 50 percent of the vote, with Heiner leading 51 percent to Fischer’s 44 percent. Independent candidate Nimbus Couzin received one percent, with four percent undecided." [LEO Weekly]
    • "CSX Transportation trains have stopped sounding their horns at six railroad crossings in St. Matthews." [Courier-Journal]
