Democrat Adam Edelen has ruled out a run for governor, saying he will instead seek another term as Kentucky's auditor in 2015.
Edelen was seen as a potential top contender for the Democratic nomination for governor next year.
Next year's gubernatorial race will be wide open. Democrat Steve Beshear is in his second term, his last under term limits.
Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway announced his entry into the 2015 governor's race last month.
On the Republican side, former Louisville Metro Councilman Hal Heiner has already joined the race.
