Gov. Beshear's son Andy to run for Ky. attorney general

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear's son has filed paperwork with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance to begin raising money for his candidacy for attorney general.

Andy Beshear, a Louisville attorney who also serves on the board of the Louisville Arena Authority, filed the paperwork on Thursday. He becomes the first Democrat to formally announce his candidacy in an election that's still two years away.

The younger Beshear said in a statement that, if elected, he would work to make Kentucky safe and prosperous.

The current attorney general, Louisville Democrat Jack Conway, is nearly half way through his second four-year term. Because of a two-term limit, Conway can't seek re-election. He instead is considering a run for governor.

Andy Beshear is seeking a job once held by his father, who was attorney general from 1980-1983. Steve Beshear has been governor since 2007.
