Republican Bevin Files for Kentucky Governor
By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT, KY - Former U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin has filed to run in the Republican primary for Kentucky governor.

Bevin, a Louisville businessman, said in a statement Tuesday that his running mate, Jenean Hampton, would be the first black female lieutenant governor in Kentucky history. Hampton served in the U.S. military, including a tour of duty in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War.

The Tea Party-backed Bevin lost last year's primary to incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell.
