Beshear's inauguration cost at least $352,000

FRANKFORT, KY. (AP) -- Governor Beshear is required to file a report in March detailing fundraising and spending for his inauguration.

So far, the price tag is more than $350 thousand.

Records filed with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance on Monday show that Beshear's inaugural committee raised $766 thousand to pay for the day-long celebration held when he was sworn in on December eleventh.

Bill Yung Jr., president of a Kentucky company that owns casinos in Indiana, Louisiana, Nevada and New Jersey, was among more than 50 people who gave $10 thousand contributions to the governor's party.
