Kentucky Attorney General hopeful makes campaign stop in Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- A man hoping to take Andy Beshear’s place in the Kentucky Attorney General’s office made a campaign stop in Bowling Green Friday morning.

Daniel Cameron, a 33-year-old Republican, sat down with WNKY to discuss his vision for the Attorney General’s office.

Cameron is running in Tuesday’s Republican Primary against Will Schroder.

Cameron, a Hardin County native and Sen. Mitch McConnell’s former legal counsel, says if elected, his first order of business would tackle the state’s drug epidemic.

Cameron says he’s also passionate about being the Commonwealth’s chief law enforcement officer and not the chief policy officer.

“As I’ve gone across the Commonwealth, I think people are tired of the political bickering that we’ve seen out of the AG’s office the last few years and want to move on to an office that focuses on the drug epidemic quite a bit,” Cameron said.

Cameron graduated from Brandeis Law School at the University of Louisville and started practicing in 2011.
