    GOP’s Quarles Announces Run for Kentucky Governor in 2023 | Political News


    By BRUCE SCHREINER, Associated Press

    Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles announced Saturday night that he will enter the 2023 governor’s race, joining what’s shaping up to be a crowded Republican contest to select a nominee to challenge Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear.

    Quarles told a GOP gathering in Lexington that he will seek the state’s top elected position.

    Quarles, in his second term as agriculture commissioner, has long been seen as a strong contender, having built up his name recognition across rural Kentucky. His entry into the race could signal a flurry of potential announcements in the coming weeks and months.

    State Auditor Mike Harmon announced last year that he will seek the GOP nomination for governor.
