The Kentucky State AFL-CIO's COPE Committee has endorsed Democrat Greg Stumbo for attorney general but the panel opted to remain neutral in the four-way race for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

The primary is May 21.

The committee voted "no recommendation" for House Minority Leader Rocky Adkins, Attorney Gen. Andy Beshear, former auditor Adam Edelen and Geoff Young, all of who whom want to be the Democratic candidate for governor.
