Adam Edelen is returning to Kentucky politics, filing paperwork Thursday to begin a campaign for governor three years after he was defeated for re-election as state auditor.

Edelen sent a letter to the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance announcing that he intends to raise and spend money as a Democratic candidate for governor. Thursday's filing does not put him on the ballot for the May primary, but it is a strong indication he will run for governor. Edelen did not return a phone call seeking comment, but he plans to make a formal announcement next week.
