Over 400 Candidates Have Filed To Run For State Offices In The 2014 Election

According to the Associated press more than 400 candidates have filed to run for congressional, legislative and judicial seats across Kentucky in next year's elections.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's chief elections official, said that number is expected to grow larger still because the filing deadline isn't until Jan. 28.

The number doesn't include the multitude of candidates for city and county offices.

Candidates running for seats in Congress and the Legislature have to file with the secretary of state's office, as do those seeking to become justices on the Kentucky Supreme Court, judges on the Court of Appeals or on circuit or district courts around the state.

Candidates for city and county offices file with their local county clerks.
