A press release from the Shell campaign

Fifth-generation Kentucky farmer and former Kentucky State House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell officially filed today for the Republican nomination for Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture. Shell is a proud conservative and will put his pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-growth and pro-farmer values to work for Kentucky families in Frankfort.

“I became a conservative riding in my grandad’s truck on our farm in Lancaster. Since then, I’ve lived our conservative Kentucky values, just like thousands of other farm families. I’m running to be Kentucky’s next Agriculture Commissioner to stand up for hardworking Kentuckians and to stop the radical elites who look down on our way of life,” said Shell, Republican Candidate for Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner.  “I’m honored by the strong support we’ve seen from across Kentucky, and I look forward to earning your trust and vote next year.”

Shell was joined in Frankfort by “Mr. Kentucky Agriculture “and Campaign Chairman, Warren Beeler, members of his family and nearly two dozen other prominent Kentucky supporters.

“I’ve been proud to be with Jonathan since Day One of this campaign, and he continues to beat all expectations. I know Jonathan is the right candidate to support Kentucky agriculture and deliver for families on and off the farm,” said Beeler, former executive director of the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy.
