Gubernatorial Candidates Stop By East KY

So far nine candidates have entered the race for governor and two of them spent this weekend talking to potential voters in eastern Kentucky.

Republican Billy Harper is a native of western Kentucky, but says he's listening to voters across the state.

He says he wants to focus on issues in Frankfort that can help every part of the commonwealth.
Meanwhile, Democratic State House Speaker Jody Richards is already on the campaign trail, stopping in Prestonsburg Saturday to talk about how he wants to make progress.

The nine Kentuckians who have registered to run for governor in 2007 include Gatewood Galbraith, Jody Richards, Jonathan Miller, Otis Hensley, Steve Henry, and Steve Beshear who are all with the democrat party.

Anne Northup, Billy Harper, and Ernie Fletcher are running on the republican ticket.

Other potential candidates for governor only have a few days left to sign up.

The deadline to file to run in the 2007 primary elections is January 30th.

Another duo is expected to announce their bid for Kentucky's top seat.

Louisville businessman Bruce Lunsford and Attorney General Greg Stumbo are expected to announce Monday that they're running on a ticket together in the democratic primary.

Lousiville Lawyer Jack Conway also is considering a jump back into politics.

He says if Stumbo vacates the attorney general's office it's highly likely he will file for that position on the democratic ticket.
