Commonwealth Journal: Keck goes to Frankfort

FRANKFORT – Flanked by a large group of family and supporters, Somerset Mayor Alan Keck officially filed for his GOP nomination for governor on Thursday at the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office. Sitting in the foyer outside the Secretary of State office, Keck addressed a large group of statewide reporters about his effort to compete for the GOP governor nomination.

“I was honored to have supporters with me today who represent the business community, first responders, family and education, people who understand the need for common sense policy in these areas and are ready to see Kentucky start winning again,” Keck said. “And as always, to have my wife Tiffany and my girls by my side as we take this giant leap forward as a family was so special. I am eager to continue traveling the state to introduce myself to Kentuckians, sharing my vision for our beautiful Commonwealth and demonstrating I have the experience to solve Kentucky’s complex challenges.”

Keck, who was recently elected to his second term as Somerset’s mayor, announced his intent to file on Nov. 21, 2022 to a packed house of more than 300 supporters at The Virginia, which serves as a symbol of Keck’s effort in reviving Somerset’s economy and downtown. Between that announcement and the end-of-year filing deadline, Keck has raised more than $200,000 for his campaign in just 40 days.
