FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democrat Crit Luallen is seeking a second term as state auditor.
Luallen filed her candidacy papers today at the secretary of state's office - less than two months after declining to enter the gubernatorial fray.
A 50-four-year-old cancer survivor, Luallen says the auditor's office is a quote -- "vitally important" job, but it's one that allows her a balance between her personal and professional life. Luallen says as a constitutional officer she'll also have a public podium to speak about issues that she believes are important to the state.
No other Democrats have entered the May primary against Luallen. Only Linda Greenwell as entered the Republican primary. Luallen beat Greenwell by more than 15-thousand votes in the 2003 general election.
