Miller Plans To Run For Governor

State Treasurer Jonathan Miller says today he'll enter the Democratic primary for governor, with Jefferson County Attorney Irv Maze as his running mate.

The 39-year-old Miller is a Harvard-educated lawyer in his second term as state treasurer. Miller says he will file papers with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance tomorrow, enabling him to begin campaign fundraising.

Miller says he has no idea how many Democrats will get into next
year's race for governor, adding, "things are very fluid right now."

Miller said that he and his runningmate are not even considering the other candidates at this point. He added: "We just need to get started as soon as possible."

Miller is from Lexington.
