AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONER CANDIDATE
Radio host to run for Kentucky agriculture commissioner as a Democrat

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 16, 2014 3:33 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


A Kentucky radio host says she will seek the Democratic nomination for state agriculture commissioner in 2015.

Jean-Marie Lawson Spann said in a news release she plans to formally announce her candidacy on Wednesday morning in Frankfort followed by a statewide tour to talk about her plans.

For the past 10 years Spann has hosted the "Jean-Marie Ag Show," a weekly radio program focusing on state and national agriculture news. She is the former secretary of the Kentucky Democratic Party State Central Executive Committee and was a delegate to the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

The commissioner of agriculture is the only statewide constitutional office not held by a Democrat. Republican James Comer has held the seat since 2012. He is a possible Republican candidate for governor in 2015.
