LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Attorney General Jack Conway has landed a plum assignment as emcee of the annual Wendell Ford Dinner, a Democratic bash set for Thursday evening in Louisville.

The job will give Conway, one of a long line of potential gubernatorial candidates in 2015, face time with the state's top Democratic leaders who will attend the event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Others considering the governor's race, including Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Auditor Adam Edelen, have been invited to speak briefly.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, a potential challenger to U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, also is among the list of Democratic speakers.

Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden and a friend of Conway's, will be the keynote speaker.
