             Biographical note 
             Kentucky governor and U.S. senator, Wendell H. Ford is a native of Daviess county, Kentucky, and attended the University of Kentucky and the Maryland School of Insurance. After returning from service in the Army during World War II, he joined his family's insurance firm in Owensboro, Kentucky. He served as chief administrative assistant to Governor Bert T. Combs and was elected as Democratic state senator in 1965. In 1967, he was elected lieutenant governor to serve with Republican governor Louie B. Nunn. In 1971, he was elected governor and three years later he successfully challenged the Republican incumbent to win election to the United States Senate. He was reelected in 1980.
