Ky. AG, Rising GOP Star Daniel Cameron Denounces Attacks on Black Conservatives

'Here in Kentucky we don't care what you look like, we care about your values...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a black Republican, denounced leftist attacks on black conservatives in a Monday interview, Newsmax reported.

Cameron recently won the Republican nomination for the upcoming gubernatorial race in Kentucky, one of the bellwethers that is likely to offer some indication of the national mood heading into the 2024 presidential election season.

He noted that he believes the people of Kentucky will not be receptive to the Left’s so-called anti-racist agenda.

He has been called the “the black face of white supremacy” in recent weeks.

In Cameron’s words, such attacks are “appalling and disappointing but not uncommon.”

For the AG, those people “discount not only my opinion, but my parents’ opinion, countless family members, a lot of black folks that are conservative.”

Fortunately, he noted, the Republican base at least does not find attacks on the basis of race to be appealing.

“The good news is that folks are disregarding and dismissing [such viewpoints] and will continue to adhere to and be attracted to the principles of the Republican Party,” he said.

Cameron has made a wave in the Republican party by describing himself as a “Reagan Republican” in a party that has turned in a more populist direction in the past decade.

In respect to the anti-racism of the Left, however, Cameron remains staunchly opposed to classifying Americans according to race.

According to the aspiring governor, the people of his state share his sentiments.

“Here in Kentucky we don’t care what you look like, we care about your values,” Cameron said. “That’s why I am the Republican nominee for governor here … [and] we feel confident that we are going to win in November.”

He will face off this November against Democratic incumbent, Gov. Andy Beshear, who “does not understand Kentucky’s values” and lacks “common sense.”

Cameron also noted that his opponent “will not be able to hide from his record,” which includes a veto of “legislation that would have banned biological men from playing in women’s sports.”
