A former ambassador has entered Kentucky’s Gubernatorial race. Kelly Craft, who served as the United States’ Ambassador to Canada from 2017-2019, officially declared her candidacy in Kentucky’s Republican gubernatorial primary. Craft, who served under former President Donald Trump, will compete with multiple Republicans for the nomination. Ultimately, the party’s nominee will be tasked with unseating the incumbent, Andy Beshear. Despite Kentucky voter’s long-running commitment to Senators Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell, the state hasn’t consistently elected Republicans for governor.

Earlier today, Craft released a statement and a video to announce her campaign:

“I’m Kelly Craft and I am running for Governor of Kentucky because I know our best days are ahead of us.
This movement is for all of us who still believe that we can lead in education, that government doesn’t get a seat at our kitchen table, and that our kids should grow up in safe neighborhoods. I believe we have Kentucky’s promise within reach—let’s achieve it together. Watch my story and join our conservative movement here: www.KellyCraft.com.”
– Craft said.
