Lexington attorney Gatewood Galbraith says he plans to enter the growing field of Democrats running for governor this year.
Galbraith has been a fixture on Kentucky's ballot.
Galbraith ran unsuccessfully for governor three times before - twice as a Democrat and once as a Reform Party candidate.
The 60-year-old Galbraith said he intends to file his candidacy papers next week in Frankfort.
He said he has a running mate lined up but declined to identify who will fill out his slate.
Meanwhile, former Lieutenant Governor Steve Henry pushed back his planned gubernatorial announcement because of the death of
long-time supporter and political mentor Bettie Weyler.
