Though Gov. Matt Bevin (R) has stated he intends to seek re-election this year, speculation is rampant that he will not. Over the weekend, US Rep. James Comer (R-Tompkinsville), who lost the 2015 Republican gubernatorial primary to Mr. Bevin by just 83 votes of more than 214,000 ballots cast before he was elected to Congress in 2016, said he would not challenge Gov. Bevin if the Kentucky chief executive files for re-election but would run if the position comes open.
