LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Kentucky State Auditor Adam Edelen will not run for governor, according to several sources close to Edelen.

Sources told WAVE 3 News Edelen will instead run for reelection in his current position which he was sworn into in Jan. 2012.

Following the release of the recent Jefferson County Public School audit Edelen told WAVE 3 News reporter Theo Keith, "We've done all the things we need to do to qualify as a candidate and run a very aggressive, credible campaign," Edelen said. "Now's the time for the important family considerations about what we have to sacrifice in order to successfully run that campaign."

If he ran, he would face Attorney General Jack Conway, who has already announced his bid.
