Democrat Sierra Enlow Files to Run for Ag Commissioner

Democrats now have a candidate in the race for Agriculture Commissioner, but it might not be the name you’re expecting.

Sierra Enlow filed on Tuesday for the race surrounded by family and with Gov. Beshear’s senior advisor Rocky Adkins looking on. Adkins was long considered to be a possibility to run for the seat.

Enlow is a graduate of LaRue County High School who works in the Louisville area as an economic development advisor who assists growing companies looking to expand or relocate both in and outside of Kentucky, real estate developers planning new projects, and municipalities seeking to attract or retain businesses in their communities. Enlow is a graduate of the Democratic Women’s group, Emerge Kentucky.

Republican farmer and former majority floor leader Jonathan Shell and state Rep. Richard Heath are competing for the GOP nomination to replace term-limited Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles, who is seeking the GOP nomination for governor.
