Statement from KDP Chair on Ryan Quarles Running for Governor

FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 2, 2022) – Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Colmon Elridge released the following statement on Ryan Quarles running for governor:

“Andy Beshear is the most popular Democratic governor in the country because he is providing effective leadership focused on attracting record economic development to our commonwealth. This includes making Kentucky an electric battery making hub with the announcements of billions of dollars of new investments from Ford and Envision. He has also led with a deep sense of compassion—understanding that these have been a trying, difficult few years and that here in Kentucky, we take care of each other and do right by our neighbors. This stands in stark contrast to the self-enrichment and political grandstanding that has defined Quarles’ more than a decade in public office. If Quarles emerges from what looks like it is going to be a messy Republican primary, Kentucky voters will have a clear choice next November.”
