Abramson: No Early Endorsement For Mayor

As prospective candidates for Louisville metro mayor decide whether to enter the race, the current occupant of the office says he won’t announce an endorsement anytime soon.

Mayor Jerry Abramson says he won’t back a candidate until next spring.                   jerry-abramson

“I’m not going to support anyone particular other than when the primary’s over,   I’ll support the Democratic nominee,”  Abramson said.

Thus far, one Democrat, businessman Greg Fischer, has officially entered the race.    Several others are considering a run for the office.

Abramson will not seek a final term as mayor and instead will be Gov. Steve Beshear’s running mate in 2011.
