Looking Ahead to 2015: Luallen Hints at Kentucky Governor's Race

One of Kentucky's leading Democrats, former state auditor Crit Luallen, is expressing interest in a run for Governor in 2015 while ruling out speculation that she might run for the U.S. Senate.

Luallen, Kentucky's former state auditor, made the rounds Saturday at the Fancy Farm political picnic. While not committing to a gubernatorial bid, she said if she does run for office again, "it would be for Governor."

Luallen also served as executive cabinet secretary under former Governor Paul Patton.

In making the statement, Luallen essentially removed herself from widespread speculation that she might challenge Republican U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell in his 2014 re-election bid.
