He's been a fixture of Kentucky politics for decades.

He's never won, but he's always made things interesting.

Gatewood Galbraith says this might have been his last campaign.

Another election day, another failed attempt for Governor for Galbraith.

But the self professed Kentucky political maverick says that is this is his last campaign, he went out the way he wanted to.

A passionate Galbraith told his group of supporters that he hopes he brought some civility and good ideas to this election.

The Nicholas County native drew comfort from the fact that he drew nearly 22% of the vote of Fayette County, while Republican challenger David Williams only got 23%.

"I think it shows that the message itself will carry wherever its talked about and wherever its talked about and wherever its out," says Galbraith.

But he says the lack of money to go head-to-head with Governor Steve Beshear and Williams ultimately cost him.

"We knew early on that Mr. Williams couldn't win. We couldn't get the message out far enough to let the Republicans know that the only way we could beat Mr. Beshear was for them to throw their votes over to me."

The loss didn't seem to dampen Galbraith's spirits as he thanked those who put in work on his campaign.

But the question of whether this is really it for Galbraith is still unanswered.

"I have no idea. I have no idea. I'm still ticked off and that's what got me out here to begin with. Some ticked off people never quit... I don't know," he answers.

While Galbraith is still playing coy with the idea of this being his last campaign, he says no matter what... you haven't heard the last of him.
