Holsclaw To Enter Gubernatorial Race

Republican Bobbie Holsclaw, of Louisville, where she has been elected county clerk four times, said Sunday she plans to enter the governor's race. Holsclaw says she and Bill Vermillion, a retired Navy master chief from Caneyville who will be her running mate, will file candidacy papers on Tuesday. Holsclaw interviewed several potential running mates in recent weeks before settling on Vermillion, a political newcomer who teaches military science at a Louisville high school. Her entry makes the GOP primary a three-way race. State Senate President David Williams and Louisville businessman Phil Moffett, a tea party candidate, have already filed to run. Democratic Governor Steve Beshear has only one opposing primary candidate, Harlan County scrap metal dealer Otis Hensley, who plans to officially enter the race before the Tuesday evening filing deadline. Independent candidate Gatewood Galbraith, a Lexington lawyer, also is running.
