Kentucky Attorney Takes a Third Run at Governor

Another Democrat has plans of running for governor this year.

Lexington Attorney Gatewood Galbraith has run for governor unsuccessfully three times before, twice as a democrat and once as a reform party candidate. The 60-year-old said he plans to file his candidacy papers next week in Frankfort, Ky.
Galbraith said he has a running-mate lined up, but declined to identify them.

Attorney General Greg Stumbo and former Lieutenant Governor Steve Henry are also Democrats said to be considering runs for governor.

Steve Henry pushed back his planned gubernatorial announcement because of the death of longtime supporter and political mentor, Bettie Weyler.

Former Lieutenant Governor Steve Beshear, State Treasurer Jonathan Miller and Harlan County businessman Otis Hensley Jr. have already filed to run on the democratic ticket.
