FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Attorney General Greg Stumbo is considering a run against Senator Mitch McConnell next year.

Stumbo says in a statement that he is forming an exploratory committee and will begin raising money. Stumbo, a Democrat, ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in the May primary election.

He says he is excited about gathering the facts and doing the ground work for the election.

Senate minority leader McConnell said during a conference call with reporters today that he's ready for all challengers. McConnell did not discuss any specific possible opponent.

McConnell has already raised more than seven-point-six million dollars for next year's election, and still has almost six million on hand.
