FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) - A second Republican has filed the necessary paperwork to run for Kentucky governor.
William E. Woods of Corinth filed to run Monday morning. His running mate is Justin B. Miller of Florence.
Woods' campaign website lists casino revenue, marijuana legalization and legislative pensions as major issues on his agenda.
His site states that he wants to fully fund the state pension in its current form, supports Americans' rights to carry a concealed weapon without a permit and wants to ensure women have the right to make their own decisions regarding abortion. Public education is also listed as a priority in Woods' campaign.
Rep. Robert Goforth has also filed to run for governor on the Republican ballot. Governor Bevin has said he plans on filing to run for re-election, but he has not submitted the paperwork yet. He has not named a potential running mate yet either.
