Grimes Won't Run for Governor

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Kentucky's secretary of state will not be running for governor this year.

Alison Lundergan Grimes announced she will not seek the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

 Grimes, who gave birth to her first baby in December, said in a statement "I want to focus on Ford, the miracle baby boy, complete the historic and momentous work we began nearly eight years ago in the office of the Secretary of State, and help elect a new era of leadership locally and nationally." 

Democrats who have declared their candidacies for governor include Attorney General Andy Beshear, House Minority Leader Rocky Adkins and former Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen.
