August 5, 2023 | News
‘Whether you’ve chosen Kentucky to raise crops or just raise your family, I’ll fight for your values every single day. To protect our way of life from Joe Biden, Andy Beshear, and the rest of their radical party, we need leaders who are Tough as Shell.’
FANCY FARM, Ky. (Aug. 5, 2023) – Republican Nominee for Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Jonathan Shell delivered the following remarks – as prepared for delivery – at the 143rd Fancy Farm Picnic, hosted by St. Jerome Church:
“Hello, Fancy Farm!
“My name is Jonathan Shell. I’m a fifth-generation farmer, a Christian and a conservative.
“I’ve farmed in Garrard County my whole life.
“If you name it, I’ve probably been in the fields with it. And let me tell you, some of it smells a lot better than others.
“We can say the same about Biden’s White House.
“‘Manure’ would be putting it politely.
“Joe Biden and Andy Beshear are out of touch with Kentucky farmers and Kentucky values.
“Their woke agenda is infecting every aspect of our culture and government.
“I’m running for Ag Commissioner to put an end to the madness: To Stop Biden and Save Kentucky.
“Andy Beshear failed to protect Kentucky. He sits on his hands as Biden Democrats threaten our way of life.
“I’m surprised Governor Beshear even showed up to a Catholic Church Picnic today!
“I guess he’ll have to ask for absolution from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
“I’m glad he could fit us into his Farewell Tour. Don’t worry, Governor.
“No one will care when you skip next year.
“They don’t usually invite former governors to speak.
“What does Kentucky agriculture mean to me?
“Food. Faith. And Family. That’s what this picnic is all about!
“Rural Kentucky needs a fighter in Frankfort with the experience to lead and the backbone to stand up for our values.
“Despite Andy Beshear’s best efforts, this church is open and this picnic is thriving!
“Whether you’ve chosen Kentucky to raise crops or just raise your family, I’ll fight for your values every single day.
“To protect our way of life from Joe Biden, Andy Beshear, and the rest of their radical party, we need leaders who are Tough as Shell.
“I’m so proud to share the stage with Kentucky’s last two commissioners, Ryan Quarles and Jamie Comer.
“They are champions for Kentucky Agriculture, and I look forward to building on their many, many achievements.
“And just look at this Republican Dream Team I’ll get to work with.
“Daniel Cameron is an all-star who has beaten Andy Beshear in court and is ready to beat him at the Ballot Box.
“Robby Mills has delivered for West Kentucky in the General Assembly, and he’ll do it again as Lieutenant Governor!
“Russell Coleman. Allison Ball. Mike Adams. My good friend and neighbor Mark Metcalf.
“We’re commonsense conservatives ready to Stop Biden and Save Kentucky!
“If we all do our part – knocking doors and making calls-- we’ll Stop Biden and Save Kentucky!
“Say it with me one more time, and don’t forget our mission.
“Vote Republican. Stop Biden. Save Kentucky.
“Thank you, and God Bless!”
