Beshear says he will not run for McConnell’s Senate seat

His response to a reporter seemed pretty firm.

When asked by reporters on Wednesday about potentially running for McConnell’s senate seat in the future, Kentucky’s Democrat Governor Andy Beshear responded with a definitive, “No.”

“I promised to serve out my term as governor and I’m gonna do that. As governor, you’re not one of 50, you’re one of one,” he said Wednesday at an event in Louisville. “And what you can do for the people of your state is so important.”

Beshear then highlighted the commonwealth’s recent economic development and healthcare expansion – adding that he is currently focused on getting more resources allocated to public education.

“This is my home,” the governor said. “My kids are happy. I’m gonna stay right where I am.”
