Our inclement weather isn't stopping the race for governor from heating up. Speaker of the House Jody Richards announced he's seeking the Democratic nomination.

Richards selected Louisville's Tony Miller as his running mate. Miller has spent the last 15 years as Jefferson County's Circuit Court Clerk.

Richards and Miller promise to restore integrity to the office of governor and represent all Kentuckians. Their first stop in Bowling Green was the first of many statewide.
