KENTUCKY GOVERNOR-CONWAY
Conway picks up endorsements from 3 well-known Kentucky Democrats in his bid for governor

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 26, 2014 10:56 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jack Conway has picked up endorsements from Kentucky's only Democratic congressman and two one-time statewide officeholders — former Sen. Wendell Ford and former state Auditor Crit Luallen.

The endorsements from three well-known Democrats are a prize catch as next year's governor's race remains in its formative stages.

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth said Thursday that Conway has the experience to provide new opportunities for Kentuckians.

Ford served four terms in the Senate. He praised Conway's efforts as attorney general to combat the state's drug addiction woes.

Luallen says Conway has the experience to strengthen education and economic opportunity.

Next year's governor's race is seen as wide open. Other possible Democratic candidates include Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo, former U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler, former Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo and Lexington banker Luther Deaton.
