Democratic Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has launched his run for another term.

Beshear filed paperwork Friday allowing him to raise and spend money on his 2023 reelection bid.

It comes days after he landed a record-shattering economic development deal putting Kentucky at the forefront of the green energy movement.

Beshear's reelection run will be tied to his actions to combat COVID-19. Several Republicans are lining up for expected bids to unseat him.

On Monday, Ford announced it will build twin battery plants at Glendale, Kentucky, in a joint venture with its battery partner to help power the automaker’s electric vehicles.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
