STATE SEN. DELBERT SCOTT PONDERS STATEWIDE RUN
State Senator Delbert tells the KY3 Political Notebook he is still waiting to see how the political chairs shuffle before he decides on a run for statewide office.
"I'm not sure the shake-up is complete," Sen. Scott said Tuesday. "I'm waiting to see who all gets in, and then I'll look at what's open and interesting. I'm not sure of all of the statewide office that are open and will be open," Scott said. "There may be some other statewide offices that could come open."
Scott is referring to the Secretary of State's office. With Robin Carnahan's recent comments about a possible run for Governor, Scott said he is keeping his options open to see if she makes the jump.
"We're just looking at what's out there, and we'll see what would be a good fit. It's an interesting time," said the Lowry City Senator.
Scott made it clear he isn't ready to endorse a candidate, but heaped praise on Rep. Kenny Hulshof.
"He's always been a class act. I have a great deal of respect for him. He's a good guy who would make a good Governor," Scott said.
He also said be believed as statewide officials, both Sarah Steelman and Peter Kinder would have an inherent advantage over Hulshof. "With their names and statewide political networks, I would think they have the advantage. But he's certainly a hard worker," Scott said.
