AG Conway expected to enter governor's race

Staff report

Attorney General Jack Conway has decided to run for Kentucky governor in 2015, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, citing several sources close to Conway.

Conway's announcement is expected this week and could come today, according to three sources who spoke to The Courier Journal on the condition of anonymity.

The attorney general previously stated that he planned to announce his decision on the governor's race this spring after the Kentucky Derby.

State Rep. Sannie Overly, D-Paris, is expected to be introduced as Conway's running mate, according to the newspaper.

Conway, 44, was elected attorney general in 2007. He lost the 2010 U.S. Senate race to Republican Rand Paul, then won re-election as attorney general in 2011.

If Conway does announce, he would be the first Democrat to publicly declare for governor. Former Louisville Metro Council Republican Hal Heiner has announced he would seek the office. Two other Democrats, State Auditor Adam Edelen and House Speaker Greg Stumbo, are also reportedly considering a run for governor, The Courier Journal reported.
