FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Hal Heiner has officially filed to seek the Republican nomination for governor.
Heiner and running mate KC Crosbie filed their paperwork at the Secretary of State’s office Monday morning. Heiner made brief remarks to a group of supporters in the Capitol parking lot before filing for office, where he characterized himself as a Frankfort outsider who could reform state government.
James Comer, the Republican state agriculture commissioner, and former state Supreme Court Justice Will T. Scott have already filed to run for the office. Scott on Monday announced a series of town hall meetings across the state where he said he would listen to people and offer them real solutions to their problems.
Candidates have until 4 p.m. on Tuesday to file for governor.
