Attorney General Tim Fox announced Thursday that he's running for governor. 

Insiders have expected this announcement for years. The Republican originally from Hardin was elected attorney general in 2012. 

In a press release Fox said, “Democrats have occupied the Governor’s Office for the last 14 years and it’s time for that to change.” 

Secretary of State Cory Stapleton has also announced he's running for the Republican nomination for governor in 2020.
