Former Kentucky Attorney General Greg Stumbo has confirmed that he will once again run for the AG seat in 2019.

Stumbo served as Attorney General from 2004 to 2008, and is a former Speaker of the House of Representatives. He currently works as an attorney for Morgan and Morgan.

Stumbo shared with WKYT on Saturday his interest in fighting the opioid epidemic, if he were to resume his role as the state’s attorney general.

“I’ve got a passion about solving that problem,” says Stumbo. I’ve been lucky to be part of a law firm that won a competitive bid with other law firms across the nation to bring some of these manufacturers and distributors to justice in a court of law. We filed cases on behalf of Attorney General Beshear. I want to see those cases prosecuted. I want to see those people who brought this plague upon Kentucky’s families, I want to see them brought to justice.”

Stumbo tells WKYT that current Attorney General Andy Beshear’s declaration that he would run for governor cleared a path for him to consider a run for the position.
