LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Candidates for Kentucky Attorney General have not been shy about lobbing personal attacks in a contest that is proving to be as heated as the headlining governor’s race.
Republican Daniel Cameron, a political newcomer, has called opponent Greg Stumbo corrupt and weak on immigration. Stumbo, a former Kentucky House Speaker and attorney general, has compared the 33-year-old Cameron’s experience to a “third grader trying to solve a complicated math problem” and said the newcomer has never even prosecuted a traffic ticket.
A win by Cameron on Nov. 5 would make him the first African-American to hold the office and the first Republican attorney general in 70 years.
The current attorney general, Andy Beshear, is skipping a bid for a second term to run for governor.
