Attorney General Andy Beshear has scheduled a news conference Monday morning concerning the "future of Kentucky."

Speculation is Beshear will be announcing a run for governor. Beshear's father, Steve Beshear, served as governor from 2007 to 2015.

He would be the first Democrat to announce a bid to run for Kentucky's governor against incumbent Governor Matt Bevin.

Andy Beshear has been the state's Attorney General since 2016.

The announcement will take place at 9 a.m. at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage in Louisville.
