Governor Beshear says he will consider David Williams for open judicial seat

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) - Governor Steve Beshear told WYMT that he will consider Senate President David Williams as a candidate for an open judicial seat in southern Kentucky.

Beshear says it is too early to say whether he would appoint his long-time political foe as a circuit judge for Cumberland, Clinton and Monroe Counties.

Williams has not said whether he would be interested in the open judicial seat.

Whoever the governor picks will replace Eddie Lovelace, who died last week after reportedly suffering a stroke.
