Multiple sources tell Kentucky Fried Politics that state Rep. Pam Stevenson is considering a run for Kentucky Attorney General next year.
Stevenson, a Democrat from the West End of Louisville, is a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel elected to the state House of Representatives in 2020. She is uncontested this year in her bid for re-election.
While in the Air Force she served as a judge advocate (JAG) representing America. Stevenson is also the founder of a nonprofit law center that helps veterans, the elderly, and working families.
She’s not the only Democrat contemplating a race for AG. Kentucky Fried Politics first shared former Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Jennifer Moore is also considering a run for AG. Moore founded Emerge Kentucky, an organization dedicated to recruiting and training Democratic women who want to run for office, which trained Stevenson.
Republican Russell Coleman is the only declared candidate in the race. Coleman is the former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky. A “liberty” candidate is expected to jump into the GOP primary for the open seat.
