FRANKFORT- Former Auditor Adam Edelen has officially filed his paperwork with his intent to run for governor.
An official with the Kentucky Registry of Finance says Edelen hand delivered his paperwork Thursday morning at 8:27 am, stating he and urban developer Gill Holland are throwing their names in the ring.
The filing ends weeks of speculation that Gill Holland would be his running mate. Holland is best known in Kentucky for his work revitalizing the NuLu neighborhood in Louisville, he is also a film producer.
Edelen is no stranger to Kentucky politics--he served as state Auditor from 2012-2016.
His filing makes him the fourth candidate vying for the state's top spot. Attorney General Andy Beshear, House Democratic Leader Rocky Adkins, and Geoff Young have also filed paperwork for the office.
Edelen has yet to officially announce his candidacy, but a website with his name surfaced briefly Wednesday.
