Richie Farmer was a famous basketball player at the University of Kentucky. That seems to have been why he was recruited to run for Agriculture Commissioner four years ago. His campaign posters still show a basketball going through a hoop, which is larger on the sign than the office he is running for.
Also, his name is farmer.
He was re-elected this week. In his victory speech, he proclaimed that he won because his message "resignated" across the Commonwealth.
He has a bright future.
