Fletcher performed better in his primary against Northup in 2007, before he lost in a landslide against Beshear in the general. The primary results were terrible for Bevin, but most of Goforth's wins came from very conservative areas, so I don't know if Beshear will be able to exploit Bevin's bare win in the primary. Rocky would have been best suited to peal through the areas Goforth did well in.

That said, wouldn't be surprised if Beshear totally blows it and loses by 8%+

Beshear has to campaign somewhat with in the east with Rocky. Can't ignore that part of the state.
And he needs to energize the Edelen base and the Sanderites by campaigning with Bernie.
That would be stupid

May be not so stupid concerning Sanderites (economic populism still has some popularity in Kentucky, including it's Eastern part), but surely not Edelen base (too easy to get characterized as "liberal city slicker" and cause massive bleeding of votes in the East)

Campaigning with any national democrats in Kentucky is astoundingly stupid
