Kentucky holds its gubernatorial election on November 8, 2011. So far, it appears there are no minor party candidates running in this race. However, one independent candidate, Gatewood Galbraith, is running and is already collecting signatures. Galbraith has been invited to a Kentucky Press Association forum for the gubernatorial candidates, to be held on January 21. The primary is in May, 2011, and the announced Republican gubernatorial candidates, David Williams and Phil Moffett, will also attend. Incumbent Democratic Governor Steve Beshear is also expected to run, but he has declined to appear at this event. See this story.
Galbraith was the Reform Party gubernatorial nominee in 1999, when he received 15.42% of the vote. Galbraith will need 5,000 signatures to appear on the November 2011 ballot. The signatures are due in early August.
