Former UK basketball player and Clay county native Richie Farmer will run for re-election.
Farmer is currently Kentucky's agriculture commissioner and is a Republican.
He filed his papers to run in Frankfort Friday.
Farmer was a member of the UK's 19-92 "Unforgettables" team which lost to Duke in the NCAA tournament's east regional final... one of the most heartbreaking losses in UK's history.
Right now Farmer is running against Democrat David Neville of Pleasureville.
