Today, Daniel Cameron won the Kentucky GOP gubernatorial primary. After the most expensive primary race in Kentucky’s history, Daniel Cameron enters the general election in an incredibly weak position as he goes up against the most popular Democratic incumbent governor in the country.
In response to Daniel Cameron’s victory, American Bridge’s State Level Communications Director Philip Shulman released the following statement:
“Our heartfelt condolences go out to Daniel Cameron on winning Kentucky’s gubernatorial primary – for the next 172 days it is our solemn vow to make him unelectable in the state of Kentucky for any office.”
Here’s what you need to know about Daniel Cameron:
- Cameron was endorsed by the Right to Life Victory PAC after committing to banning all abortions with zero exceptions whatsoever. This goes past Kentucky’s current law, which makes an exception to protect the life of the pregnant person.
- Cameron has committed himself to the Matt Bevin plan to gut Medicaid, which could jeopardize health care for 136,000 Kentuckians and cost the state more than $270 million.
- A group backing Daniel Cameron received $100,000 from Pace-O-Matic, a company that then brought a lawsuit against the state a week later. In addition, Pace-O-Matic executives contributed directly to Cameron’s campaign the day before the lawsuit was filed. But of course, Cameron’s office said that there was nothing nefarious or improper about the donation.
- Cameron said he was still “honored” to have Donald Trump’s endorsement after the former president was found liable for sexual abuse and defamation.
