Lunsford may run for governor



The Associated Press

FRANKFORT - Health-care executive and former state Commerce Commissioner Bruce Lunsford said Tuesday he is considering a campaign for governor next year.

Mr. Lunsford said he will not make a decision before Jan. 1.

Mr. Lunsford could end up in a Democratic field that includes Attorney General Ben Chandler, House Speaker Jody Richards, Lt. Gov. Steve Henry and Louisville businessman Charlie Owen.

"I don't pay much attention necessarily who's in or out of the race," he said.

Mr. Lunsford served in the administration of Gov. John Y. Brown Jr. and remains fairly close to the former governor.

Mr. Lunsford said becoming a candidate would involve family sacrifice that he must weigh.
