The distinction is that current Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton was the first African American elected to a state office but on a slate with Matt Bevin.

Cameron is a former U-of-L football player who went on to become a law clerk and general counsel to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

At President Trump’s rally Monday night in Rupp Arena, Donald Trump made it a point to bring Cameron to the stage, calling him a rising star in the republican party.
