A judge is telling Kentucky's governor and lieutenant governor to settle their differences.  

A hearing was held this (Monday) morning in a lawsuit filed by Lieutenant Governor Jenean Hampton against the Bevin administration.  
 
She is seeking the reinstatement of two top staffers who were fired by the administration. 

Hampton was dropped form the Bevin re-election ticket. However, she tells reporters that she still supports Bevin's re-election.

Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd urged the two sides to resolve the matter out of court.
