Aug 6, 2013

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. - Kentucky's Lieutenant Governor says he is taking a pass on running for governor in 2015.

Speaking Tuesday afternoon to the Elizabethtown Rotary Club, Democrat Jerry Abramson said he wants to spend his remaining two-and-a-half years in Frankfort as an education advocate.

Abramson had previously said he was considering a gubernatorial bid. He told his Hardin County audience Tuesday that he wants to be an "education warrior" who helps the commonwealth develop a more skilled and educated workforce.
