FRANKFORT — Drew Curtis of Versailles plans to enter this year's race for governor on Monday as an independent candidate.
Curtis, founder of the news aggregation website Fark.com, said Friday he has collected about 8,000 signatures, about 3,000 more than the 5,000 needed to get on the ballot.
Curtis' wife, Heather, will be his running mate.
Tuesday is the last day a candidate can get on the ballot for the Nov. 3 general election.
The two major candidates for governor are Republican Matt Bevin and Democrat Jack Conway, both of Louisville.
