Kentucky lawmaker Max Wise eying possible run for governor

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Republican state Sen. Max Wise says he’s strongly considering a bid for Kentucky governor in 2023. The Campbellsville lawmaker has played a key role in shaping education policy as a committee chairman. Wise said Wednesday he’d bring solid conservative credentials on social and economic issues if he enters race. Wise made the comments to The Associated Press. Wise is in his second Senate term and is chairman of the Senate Education Committee. It could become a crowded field of GOP candidates for the state’s top elected post. Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear has said he intends to seek a second term.
