FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear may tap his former campaign rival David Williams for a vacant circuit court judgeship.

A spokesperson for Williams said the state senate president would consider the move if an appointment was made.

Beshear said he believes Williams is qualified for the job of circuit judge.    

A circuit court judgeship is open in William's district and Beshear must make an appointment to fill the 2-year term.

Williams was trounced by Beshear in last year's gubernatorial election.
