The primary election will shrink the field on May 21 as the Republicans and Democrats select their nominees. The general election will be November 5.
Only three candidates will face no opposition in the May primary. That list includes State Auditor Mike Harmon and State Treasurer Allison Ball, both incumbent Republicans. In the race for attorney general, former Attorney General Greg Stumbo, a Democrat, will not face a primary. Stumbo, a former attorney general and speaker of the House is looking to get back to Frankfort after losing his seat in 2016.
In northern Kentucky, a surprising twist saw State Senator Wil Schroder (R-Wilder) file to run for that same Attorney General race. Schroder, who just completed a successful reelection campaign in November, will not have to relinquish his position as Senator while he campaigns.
He faces a tough primary opponent in Daniel Cameron, a former aide to Sen. Mitch McConnell.
