Gov. Steve Beshear's son has filed paperwork with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance to begin raising money for his candidacy for attorney general.

Andy Beshear, a Louisville attorney, filed the paperwork on Thursday. He becomes the first Democrat to formally announce his candidacy in an election that's still two years away.

The younger Beshear said in a statement that, if elected, he would work to make Kentucky safe and prosperous.

The current attorney general, Louisville Democrat Jack Conway, is nearly half way through his second four-year term. Because of a two-term limit, Conway can't seek re-election. He instead is considering a run for governor.

Andy Beshear is seeking a job once held by his father, who was attorney general from 1980-1983. Steve Beshear has been governor since 2007.
