Daniel Cameron won Tuesday's race for Kentucky Attorney General, and it was a historic victory. He is going to be the Commonwealth’s first African American Attorney General ever, as well as the first Republican Attorney General since 1948. He defeated former Democratic Attorney General and former Speaker of the Kentucky House of Representatives Greg Stumbo to make it happen.

Republican Attorneys General Association Chairman and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton was ecstatic about the news.

"Kentucky voters sent a strong signal tonight: They want Daniel Cameron to clean up decades of Democrat dysfunction and restore credibility to the Attorney General’s Office," Paxton said in a statement. "For the first time in a generation, Kentucky will have an Attorney General who is focused on supporting and defending the rule of law and Kentucky’s law enforcement community, and more interested in fighting public safety challenges than political opponents. Daniel was an excellent candidate and as Kentucky Attorney General, will make every Kentuckian proud of the Commonwealth.”

During the campaign Cameron claimed to have been the victim of insensitive racial slurs because of his politics, but said he believed in the values of the Republican Party. He campaigned on pro-life policies, gun rights and anti-illegal immigration, according to Kentucky.com.

"The Democratic Party needs to stop telling black Republicans how to think,” he said in August.

Cameron previously served as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s legal counsel in Washington, D.C.

We are still awaiting the results of Kentucky's gubernatorial election, where Republican Gov. Matt Bevin is in a virtual tie with outgoing Attorney General Andy Beshear.
