Democrat Jack Conway has officially filed to run for governor. The Attorney General filed candidacy papers with the Secretary of State's office Monday morning.
Conway announced his candidacy several months ago and has raised more than$1.3 million. But today’s filing officially puts him on the ballot for the May 19 Democratic primary.
Conway is the second person to file for Kentucky governor. Former congressional candidate Geoff Young filed in December. It's unclear if other top Democrats will challenge Conway for the nomination. House Majority Floor Leader Rocky Adkins is considering a run but has not made a decision.
Candidates have until Jan. 27 to file for the race. At least three Republicans have said they will run, but none has filed yet.
