FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Reaching across party lines, Democratic Gov.-elect Andy Beshear says he’ll appoint Republican Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron to serve the final weeks of his term as Kentucky’s top law enforcement officer.
Cameron’s appointment to take Beshear’s place as attorney general takes effect Dec. 17. Cameron begins his full term Jan. 6 stemming from his victory in the November election.
