Clark Ogilvie, Senior Minority Staffer


Clark Ogilvie(Richard A. Bloom)

Ogilvie, the senior Democratic professional staff member, is in charge of the three issues that matter most to farmers and businesses: commodity policy, crop insurance, and the futures industry.

He is the rare Agriculture Committee staffer who was not raised on or near a farm, and so he has learned these issues on the job.


Ogilvie, 44, grew up in Memphis, Tenn., and graduated from Rhodes College in 1991. He came to Washington, took a paid internship in the Senate Computer Center, and was installing computers when then-Sen. Jim Sasser, D-Tenn., hired him as a legislative correspondent.

After stints working for Al Gore's Senate office and at a law firm—and finishing law school—Ogilvie moved to the Agriculture Committee staff in 2005, when Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., became the ranking member.
