Ryan Quarles former campaign manager for his 2019 re-election as Agriculture Commissioner is returning home to work for Daniel Cameron in the GOP primary for governor where Quarles is competing against Cameron and a dozen other Republican rivals.
Gus Herbert, who managed Quarles re-election bid in 2019, and has been working in South Dakota for U.S. Senate John Thune’s re-election, will now join Daniel Cameron’s campaign as his campaign manager, Cameron announced on Monday.
“He will be a great addition to our team as we continue to work to unite our party and defeat Andy next November,” Cameron said on Twitter of Herbert’s hire.
Herbert has worked for multiple Republicans in Kentucky, including another constitutional officer, and GOP gubernatorial hopeful – Auditor Mike Harmon. Herbert also served as a special advisor for Quarles at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture before leaving for the Thune campaign.
“Running Sen Thune’s campaign was an opportunity of a lifetime and we made life-long friends in South Dakota but there’s nothing like my Old Kentucky Home! Thanks to Daniel and Makenze for allowing me to be a part of this journey,” Herbert wrote online of his new job with the Cameron campaign.
Quarles recently hired Jake Cox, as his campaign manager for the GOP gubernatorial primary.
