KENTUCKY GOVERNOR-EDELEN
Democrat Adam Edelen rules out 2015 run for governor; will seek re-election as state auditor

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 10:19 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Democrat Adam Edelen has ruled out a run for governor, saying he will instead seek another term as Kentucky's auditor in 2015.

Edelen said Wednesday that a gubernatorial bid would have required "difficult sacrifices" for his family. He said he's not willing to make those sacrifices at this time. Edelen said he appreciates the encouragement he received to enter the governor's race.

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.
