Pro-Trump Republican Daniel Cameron Makes History in Kentucky
 
Pro-Trump Republican has made history in Kentucky by being elected the next Attorney General of the State.

Cameron, who worked for Senator Mitch McConnell, became the first Republican to win the seat in 70 years and the first Black candidate ever.

According to Fox News:

Republican Daniel Cameron made history Tuesday with his victory over former Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo, becoming the first African-American to be elected the state's attorney general -- and offering a silver lining to the GOP amid drama over the state's gubernatorial race.

Further, Cameron will be the first Republican attorney general in the state in more than 70 years, a significant achievement as GOP Gov. Matt Bevin trails Democrat Andy Beshear in a tight race in which Bevin has not conceded but Democrats have declared victory.

The Trump campaign highlighted Cameron’s win, however, even as it appeared to write off Bevin's chances of prevailing.

“President Trump’s rally helped five of six Kentucky Republicans win clear statewide victories, including Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron, who will be the first black A.G. in Kentucky history and the first Republican to hold the office since 1948,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “The President just about dragged Gov. Matt Bevin across the finish line, helping him run stronger than expected in what turned into a very close race at the end. A final outcome remains to be seen.”

 
President Trump has been a vocal supporter of Cameron, even traveling to Kentucky on Monday to campaign for him.
