Kentucky receives first GOP Attorney General candidate
FRANKFORT, Kentucky: Hopkins County Attorney Todd P’Pool became the first official candidate in the race for Attorney General of Kentucky upon filing paper with the Secretary of State's Office on Wednesday, December 15th, 2010. P'Pool was the first Republican since the Reconstruction Era elected to county-wide office in Hopkins County when he was elected as its attorney in 2006. In addition to pledging to curb drug abuse throughout the state, P'Pool stated that, if elected, he would joined the twenty-plus other state attorneys general in filing suit against the federal government over the "individual mandate" that requires all citizens to purchase health insurance.
Although Democratic incumbent Jack Conway, who was defeated last month in his campaign for the United States Senate, has declared that he will indeed run for re-election to his current statewide position, he has yet to files official papers with the Secretary of State.
