FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Attorney General Jack Conway said his decision to not defend Kentucky's gay marriage ban will not be an issue in the 2015 governor's race.

Conway announced his candidacy in the race on Tuesday, two months after calling a tearful news conference to announce he would not appeal a judge's ruling forcing Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

The decision pitted Conway against Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear, who decided to hire private attorneys to appeal the case.

Conway said Tuesday that he believes voters will be more interested in building Kentucky's future than rehashing his decision not to appeal the lawsuit. He said voters will be focused more on issues such as public education and economic development.
