FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Republican Bobbie Holsclaw is still considering a run for governor in Kentucky, though she hasn't yet settled on a running mate.

Holsclaw, in her fourth term as Jefferson County clerk, said Monday she won't enter the GOP primary race until she is joined by a strong lieutenant gubernatorial candidate.

Already, state Senate President David Williams and Louisville businessman Phil Moffett have entered the Republican primary. Gov. Steve Beshear has drawn only token opposition on the Democratic side from Harlan County scrap metal dealer Otis Hensley.

Lexington lawyer Gatewood Galbraith, who last week received the endorsement of country music star Willie Nelson, is running as an independent.
