LOUISVILLE, Ky (AP) -- A prominent Kentucky Republican says former Louisville councilman Hal Heiner is entering next year's race for governor.

Former state Republican Chairman Bob Gable said Heiner is teaming with another urban Republican as his running mate. Gable said Monday night that Heiner will introduce former Lexington-Fayette County councilwoman KC Crosbie as his running mate on Tuesday.

Crosbie ran for state treasurer in 2011, narrowly losing to Democratic incumbent Todd Hollenbach.

Heiner, an engineer and developer, will formally enter the governor's race during an event in Lexington. The 2015 GOP primary is some 14 months away.

Gable says he believes Heiner will be the Republican nominee for governor and that he showed his vote-getting ability in the 2010 mayoral race in Louisville. Heiner lost a hard-fought campaign in that 2010 race and also served two terms on the Louisville Metro Council.
