LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) -- Louisville businessman Hal Heiner announced today he will run for Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 2015 on the Republican ticket.

He also said K.C. Crosbie will be his Lt. Governor on the ticket. She ran for State Treasurer in 2011 where she lost to current Treasurer Todd Hollenbach.

“This will be a campaign about big ideas and lofty goals,” said Hal Heiner.

“It will be about putting Kentucky first. If we bring innovation and a change of culture to Frankfort, I know for certain that we can make Kentucky economically competitive, create jobs, and make our
education system the envy of the nation. I believe that when we unlock Kentucky’s vast potential, our state can be an economic powerhouse. With new leadership, Kentucky can be a modern day success story, with a thriving economy where Kentuckians have easy access to good
paying jobs, are well educated, are healthy and enjoy a higher standard of living,” said Heiner.

Heiner was elected to the Louisville Metro Council in 2002 and served until 2010. He lost an election in 2010 to current Mayor Greg Fischer.
