Ex-Gov. Brown to Run Again in Kentucky in ‘87

Associated Press

Former Gov. John Y. Brown Jr. says that he plans to be a gubernatorial candidate again in 1987.

“I don’t think anything could change my mind,” Brown said in an interview published Monday in the Lexington Herald-Leader. “If the people still want me and the polls still look good, my inclination is that (running again) is what I’d like to do.”

The 51-year-old Democrat was governor of Kentucky from 1979 until 1983. State law bars governors from serving consecutive terms. Brown said he would not make a formal announcement of his candidacy until next year.
