Frankfort, KY – Former Kentucky governor Julian Carroll has endorsed Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo in his bid for a U.S. Senate seat. Mongiardo's campaign announced the endorsement Thursday. Carroll, who served as governor from 1974-1979 and currently serves in the state Senate, called Mongiardo "an independent Democrat" who would put Kentucky first. Mongiardo is running against Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway for the Democratic nomination to replace retiring two-term Sen. Jim Bunning.
