Governor

The Governor is the chief executive officer of the commonwealth--meaning that he or she is the highest ranking official in the Executive Branch. The Governor oversees the enforcement of laws and services for Kentuckians, has the ability to veto legislation that comes through the General Assembly, and more.

The Lieutenant Governor runs for office jointly with the Governor and serves on many commissions and boards. If something were to happen to the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor would take his or her place.

Our current Governor, Matt Bevin, is eligible for re-election.
