W.Va. Sen. Kent Leonhardt Expected to Announce Ag Commissioner Bid

West Virginia Legislative Services

Republican state Sen. Kent Leonhardt is expected to announce another bid for West Virginia agriculture commissioner.

GOP consultant Kent Gates says Leonhardt will make an announcement Monday at the Capitol.

In 2012, Leonhardt lost to Democrat Walt Helmick, the current first-term agriculture commissioner.

Leonhardt won his Senate seat last year. He would keep that job if he loses the agriculture commissioner race.

Leonhardt is a Monongalia County farmer and a retired U.S. Marine Corps member.
