|Description||FRANKFORT --Two high-profile Democratic officials who had considered taking on U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell next year are signalling that they're less likely to take the plunge after all. |
State Auditor Crit Luallen, in addition to losing key advisers to incoming Gov. Steve Beshear's administration, has told party leaders in Washington that she's decided against running, and that word has filtered back to Kentucky.
And outgoing Attorney General Greg Stumbo, who started an exploratory committee to consider the race, is saying that he's now looking at getting his old job back as state representative from Floyd County.
"I represented that district for over 20 years and still live there. They have a representative up there now who is doing a good job," he told the Herald-Leader this week. "But I love the state House. It's an option."
