Williams, Farmer announcement coming, website counting down the minutes

September 1, 2010

After weeks of speculation, Senate President David Williams and Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer are slated to make an announcement about their political futures this morning at 10 Central.

The announcement is likely to confirm an anticipated move for governor by Williams, with Farmer coming along for the ride as a candidate for lieutenant governor. Leading up to today’s announcement, Williams has been much more active in getting out and about around the state, including a stop in Owensboro on Monday for the official opening of the Daviess County Republican Party campaign headquarters.

And just to give more credibility to the speculation that a Williams-Farmer ticket is to be announced today – check out

The site, which pays tribute to Farmer’s spot in UK basketball history with a basketball in the logo, is supposedly counting down the seconds until this morning’s announcement, but appears to be off by an hour. As of 7:45 a.m. Central, the ticker reads 3 hours, 15 minutes to go, yet the announcement is scheduled for 10 a.m. Central. Hmmm.

But the site does include the required notation of “Paid for by Williams-Farmer 2011.”

There’s also a Facebook page for “Williams-Farmer for Kentucky”, that as of this morning had about 58 fans.

We’ll see what’s coming later this morning, but it looks like next year’s campaign will certainly be a doozie.
