There will be 39 candidates vying for votes in seven statewide offices starting with the May primary on May 21.
The general election will be November 5.
Only three candidates will face no opposition in the May primary. That list includes Harmon and Ball, both incumbent Republicans. In the race for attorney general, Stumbo, a Democrat, will not face a primary. Also the former Speaker of the House, Stumbo is looking to get back to Frankfort after losing his seat in 2016.
In northern Kentucky, State Senator Wil Schroder (R-Wilder) filed 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.
