Political observers are keeping a close eye on Kentucky’s Lieutenant Governor this week. Jerry Abramson has said he would announce whether or not he plans to run for governor shortly after the Fancy Farm political picnic.
Abramson is addressing the Elizabethtown Rotary Club Tuesday, and every public event he makes this week will likely draw extra attention.
Abramson has made no secret of the fact that he’s been considering a run for the governor’s mansion in 2015. His boss, Governor Steve Beshear will be finishing up his second term and by law has to step aside.
Abramson, a former Louisville mayor, has been often mentioned as a potential Democratic candidate for governor, along with Attorney General Jack Conway, Auditor Adam Edelen, and former auditor Crit Luallen.
Abramson’s Tuesday speech to the Elizabethtown Rotary Club begins at noon eastern time at Stone Hearth Restaurant.
