Despite his famous political name in Kentucky – Albert Benjamin Chandler III – the grandson of former governor Happy Chandler is facing another tough race to remain in Congress.
Stumbo most likely will surface as a potential candidate for governor in 2015 but his fortunes may be tied to whether or not the Democrats retain control of the Kentucky House.
Down ticket voting in this fall’s presidential election could be critical to that outcome with the Democrats holding only a 10-vote majority, 55-45.
As speculation continues about Kentucky’s next governor, we expect State Rep. Rocky Adkins to receive serious, well-deserved consideration.
In our opinion, he is as solid as his name.
