KDP Statement on 12th Republican Entering Governor’s Race

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Nov. 21, 2022) – Statement from Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Colmon Elridge on the 12th Republican to announce their 2023 run for governor:

“Andy Beshear is one of the most popular governors in the country because he is creating a better Kentucky for all of our families, already announcing more than 40,000 jobs and shattering economic development records, while leading our people through historic storms and other unprecedented challenges. The mayor is now the 12th candidate in what is shaping up to be a crowded, expensive and nasty race to the extreme fringe of the GOP. Next year, Kentuckians will have a clear choice between one of the most popular governors in the country and whoever emerges from the crowded, brutal Republican primary.”
