The son of two-term former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has announced plans to run for Governor in 2019.

Andy Beshear announced Monday he will seek the Democratic nomination for governor in 2019. He is the first candidate to formally enter the race, as Republican Gov. Matt Bevin has not said whether he will seek re-election.

His dad Steve forced the online gambling sector to descend upon Kentucky's capital of Frankfurt in an effort to prevent the then Governor from seizing over 100 domain names back in 2008.  Domain registrants were also present and backed the gambling sector. Ultimately Beshear was denied the ability to take control of the domains.

"For those Kentuckians who did not get enough corruption, self-dealing, embezzlement and bribery during the 8 corrupt years of Governor Steve Beshear, his son, Andy, is now offering a chance for 4 more years of the same," Bevin posted to his personal Twitter account.
