From office of Secretary of State Elaine Walker

Frankfort, KY - Two candidates filed statement of candidacy forms to run for political office as either an independent or political group candidate. Gatewood Galbraith filed his statement of candidacy form seeking the office of Governor as an independent candidate. Dea Riley is listed as his running mate. Kenneth C. Moellman, Jr. filed as a Libertarian Party for the office of State Treasurer.

Failure of candidates required to file the Statement of Candidacy shall result in the rejection of any nominating petition submitted to the appropriate filing official by the August 9, 2011 deadline for attaining ballot access in the November 8, 2011 general election.

In order to be placed on the ballot for the November 8th general election, these candidates must still file the appropriate nominating petition by 4pm on August 9, 2011. The Statement-of-Candidacy form for independent candidates is required by KRS 118.365(5) which was enacted by the 2003 General Assembly.
