2019 Elections: Where FedUp PAC Will Focus its Energy
Three states will hold gubernatorial elections in 2019:
- Kentucky: One-term Republican Matt Bevin is seeking re-election. Declared Democratic candidates include Attorney General Andy Beshear and House Minority Leader Rocky Adkins, with former state auditor Adam Edelen and Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes among potential candidates.
- Louisiana: One-term Democrat John Bel Edwards is seeking re-election. Republican U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham has declared his candidacy, while Republican U.S. Sen. John Neely Kennedy, widely expected to challenge Edwards, has declined to run.
- Mississippi: Two-term Republican Phil Bryant is term-limited in 2019 and therefore ineligible to seek re-election. Potential Republican candidates include Mississippi House of Representatives Speaker Philip Gunn, former U.S. Senator Trent Lott, State Senator Chris McDaniel, Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves, and Mississippi Supreme Court Chief Justice Bill Waller. Democratic candidates include Attorney General Jim Hood.
