FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and his wife were among the guests at the White House’s state dinner honoring French president Francois Hollande.

Kentucky’s first couple found themselves among hundreds of people invited to the lavish dinner Tuesday.

Beshear and his wife, Jane, also participated in the arrival ceremony for the French president.

Beshear says it’s a wonderful opportunity for the state anytime a governor can be in the same room with so many leaders. The guest list included leaders in business, government, arts and sports.

France is the seventh-largest consumer of Kentucky products.

It’s the second time in recent weeks Beshear has found himself in the Washington spotlight. The governor was among the guests who sat with first lady Michelle Obama at President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech.
