LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Another statewide office is up for grabs – the seat for Attorney General.
The ballot includes republican Daniel Cameron and democrat Greg Stumbo. The two candidates have not been shy about lobbing personal attacks against each other.
Cameron has called Stumbo corrupt and weak on immigration.
Stumbo 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 would make him the first African – America to hold the office and the first republican Attorney General in 70 years.
A lawsuit filed against Cameron said he was ineligible to run for Attorney General because he lacked the experience to hold the office. The suit claimed he had not practiced law for the required 8 years under the state constitution and therefore, should not be on the November ballot.
A judge ruled in favor of Cameron which allowed him to still be in the race.
