Abramson: Deciding Soon on Possible 2015 Run

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson says he's close to deciding whether he'll run for governor in 2015.

Abramson said Monday he expects to decide in the next couple of weeks.

The former Louisville mayor is among several potential Democratic candidates eyeing the governor's race. Others include Attorney General Jack Conway, Auditor Adam Edelen, former Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo and former Auditor Crit Luallen.

Abramson told reporters he's not concerned who else might enter the race, saying "the more the merrier."

Kentucky governors are limited to two terms, and Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear is in the middle of his second.

Abramson will skip this week's Fancy Farm church picnic due to a family event. The picnic includes stump speeches, but Abramson says the focus will be on next year's U.S. Senate race.
