FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Lawrence County Attorney Michael T. Hogan says he will run for state Attorney General as a Republican.

Hogan’s announcement sets up a Republican primary against state Sen. Whitney Westerfield, who filed for the office on Friday. Hogan said he plans to file his paperwork with the Secretary of State’s office on Monday.

The 46-year-old was re-elected in November to a fourth term as Lawrence County attorney. He has a law degree from Northern Kentucky University and is a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves. He and his wife, Joy, live in Louisa and have three children.

Hogan said he decided to run for office because he was tired of the Attorney General’s office being a stepping stone for people who want to be governor. He pledged to be a strong advocate for county attorneys and local prosecutors.
