Attorney General Greg Stumbo Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell SEE RELATED:

\ Mr. Stumbo held the House seat from Prestonsburg for 24 years, and made his intentions clear to run in a special election just one day after his predecessor Brandon Spencer announced his sudden resignation. (The Floyd County Times has the details; registration required.) \

\ This is the second expected challenger in as many weeks to announce they will not run against Mr. McConnell, a fourth-term incumbent; State Auditor Crit Luallen was also a strong contender.\

\ Possible Democratic challengers still on the horizon are businessman Bruce Lunsford and Greg Fischer. A former congressional candidate, Andrew Horne, just tossed his hat into the ring last week.\
