Drew Curtis files paperwork for independent bid for Kentucky governor

Drew Curtis has filed paperwork to run as an independent candidate for governor in November.
    
The businessman from Versailles says he collected more than 9,000 signatures supporting his candidacy. State law requires him to have at least 5,000 signatures from Kentucky registered voters to qualify to appear on the ballot.
    
Curtis filed the paperwork with the Secretary of State's office on Monday morning. But he was waiting on his campaign manager to arrive with a check for the $500 filing fee and a form listing the name of the campaign's treasurer.
    
Curtis is the founder of Fark.com, a news aggregation website. His running mate is his wife, Heather. Curtis was a registered Democrat until last year but described himself as an "ultra pragmatist." He said he supports the Medicaid expansion as long as the state can afford it.
