Farmer, a star basketball player at UK in the 1990s, said he has talked to Williams about a possible slate next year and that they have discussed who would be at the top of ticket.
Told that Farmer has not ruled out a bid for governor, Williams said Farmer and he have been in contact and that they will announce “the right decision soon.”
“I think Secretary of State, or some of the other constitutional offices may be an option, but would be leaning toward running for one of the top spots, ” Farmer said prior to the annual Kentucky Farm Bureau ham breakfast at the Kentucky State Fair Thursday.
Farmer says he’ll make a decision after consulting with his family.
