The race to become Kentucky’s next governor is growing, as another person has announced his candidacy. Democratic House Minority Leader Rocky Adkins was just elected to his 17th term in the Kentucky House. Now he is setting his sights on becoming the state’s next governor. “They want dignity and respect brought back to the governor’s office in the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” Adkins said. One of the big issues in the campaign is expected to be fixing the teacher pension system.
