State Senate president David Williams and Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer announced their gubernatorial ticket today.

Tony McVeigh will have more soon. In the meantime, here’s a clip from the official announcement.

The campaign will not hold any fundraising events until after November’s election out of deference to Dr. Rand Paul and the entire slate of GOP candidates. Williams and Farmer will focus on helping retain the U.S. Senate seat held by Jim Bunning, preserving and expanding the GOP majority in the Kentucky Senate, and on helping Republicans win as many races as possible at all levels.

Former Kentucky State Adjutant General Donald Storm will serve as the campaign chairman.

“Williams and Farmer offer proven leadership for Kentucky, and I look forward to helping them campaign across the state with a bold, positive agenda for Kentucky’s future,” Storm said.
