President in the Making? Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron Announces Candidacy for 2023 Governor's Race

From Just the Newsposted 2 weeks ago

Article Summary

Kentucky GOP Attorney General Daniel Cameron filed paperwork this week to run for governor in 2023, setting up a competition between himself and incumbent Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear.

In a video announcing his candidacy, Cameron portrays Beshear as being out of touch with the politics of most Kentuckians.

“This governor does not reflect our values,” Cameron said. “He’s never going to change, so we have to change our government.”

Standing beside his wife, Cameron also said: “Makenze and I believe Kentucky needs a governor who uses common sense. One bold enough to defend innocent life. A governor who understands that only faith can keep us strong. Team Kentucky needs a new coach, one who will build us up, not divide us.”

Prior to Cameron’s announcement, the GOP primary field included state Auditor Mike Harmon and Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles.

In conservative Kentucky, Cameron is expected to be a strong candidate. As attorney general, his handling of the high-profile police shooting death of Breonna Taylor in 2020 put him on the national map – as did his speech at the Republican National Convention that same year.
