DescriptionTwo big-name Democrats have decided not to run in next year's U.S. Senate race, announcing Monday that they will instead endorse Jack Conway for the job.

U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler and state Auditor Crit Luallen had been considering the race, but decided instead to get behind Conway, Kentucky's attorney general.

"The fact that we have a candidate of the caliber of Jack Conway, in my view, is enough for me to take a pass on this race," Chandler said Monday.

Conway announced last week that he will run for the seat now held by two-term Republican Jim Bunning. He has a growing number of political endorsements, including House Speaker Greg Stumbo, Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson and U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, all of whom took part in a campaign kickoff at the Muhammad Ali Center on Monday.
