Trump-Endorsed Candidate Wins KY GOP Nomination In Governor's Race

Daniel Cameron, Kentucky Attorney General, won the Republican gubernatorial nomination this week.

Cameron will face Democrat Governor Andy Beshear in Kentucky's upcoming general election.

Cameron was endorsed by former President Donald Trump last year.

"At every level, Daniel has stood out, he will be a great governor of Kentucky and has my complete and total endorsement," Trump said in his endorsement of the 37-year-old Cameron.

"Beshear, the son of former Gov. Steven Beshear (D-KY) staved off two challengers to easily win the Democrat primary in his bid for a second term," reported Breitbart.

"Cameron, who previously served as legal counsel to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), was elected as attorney general in 2019," reported Breitbart. "He became the first black elected official to hold standalone office in the state’s history and marked its first Republican attorney general in 71 years, according to his website."

"He heads into the general election as Kentucky has become increasingly red in recent years, as the amount of registered Republicans eclipsed the registered Democrats last summer after decades of work. For reference, in 1984, registered Democrats more than doubled the number of registered Republicans at 1.3 million to 525,000, as the Republican Party of Kentucky noted," Breitbart reports.
