Another lieutenant governor gets hitched, will another party switch of convenience by the bride follow?

Before Kentucky's only Miss America, Heather French, got married, she was a staunch Republican.

But when she became engaged to then-Lt. Gov. Steve Henry, she changed her registration to Democrat.

Fast-forward a few years, when another 40-something bachelor lieutenant governor plans to wed another 20-something female.

Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo plans to marry Frankfort native Allison Patrick sometime, someplace. The details of those nuptials are being kept secret.

Mongiardo is a Democrat. He met Patrick on the floor of the Kentucky Senate when he was serving in that body, and was introduced to Patrick by State Sen. Alice Forgy Kerr.

Kerr is a Republican and Patrick was volunteering with Kerr's campaign. It's not hard to draw the conclusion that Patrick is a Republican from the fact that she was working for Kerr's campaign.

So we're left to wonder -- will Patrick change her registration out of convenience, as Heather French Henry did? Or will she remain true to her core beliefs?
