Gatewood Galbraith, the perennial candidate for governor and other offices, is dead at the age of 64.

Galbraith's family says he died Tuesday night, surrounded by family members. A statement from his daughter says he died of pneumonia. The coroner says the cause of death was complications from emphysema.

Galbraith ran for governor of Kentucky five times. Most recently, he ran in the 2011 general election as an independent, winning nine percent of the vote.

Galbraith was remembered for his wit and personality. Governor Steve Beshear, Senate President David Williams, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, and House Speaker Greg Stumbo all praised him Wednesday.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Milward Funeral Home.
