Republican Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles rolled out another major list of endorsements on Tuesday for his run in the GOP primary for governor.
The latest list, featuring 52 endorsements from General Assembly members, County Judge Executives, County Clerks, Magistrates, Mayors, and City Council members, brings the total number of endorsements announced by the campaign up to 106.
“I’m honored to have the support of so many local and state elected officials for my candidacy,” said Quarles. “Across the state, elected officials at all levels are voicing their support for my campaign because they recognize I’m the most experienced candidate, the most capable of defeating Andy Beshear, and the candidate most capable of uniting Kentuckians during these trying times.”
Quarles, in his second term as Commissioner of Agriculture, previously released a list of 54 endorsements from State House and Senate members and County Judge Executives as he kicked off his campaign in Georgetown, Kentucky, earlier this month.
“While there will be a lot of national attention paid to next year’s Republican Gubernatorial primary, Kentuckians know best who should be their next Governor,” said Quarles. “I’m excited to have such strong support from these elected officials. They are known and respected in their communities and their backing carries real weight with the voters. Their support and the grassroots network we are building will be the key to victory in next May’s primary.”
The list from Quarles comes as Attorney General Daniel Cameron touted an endorsement from Donald Trump last week.
