Over 50 Kentucky Law Enforcement Officials Endorse Attorney General Daniel Cameron for Governor

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s campaign for governor released their first round of endorsements, which included over 50 law enforcement officials from all across the Commonwealth.

The list of law enforcement officials included sheriffs, chiefs of police, commonwealth’s attorneys, county attorneys, and jailers, who all support Cameron’s “strong law enforcement agenda.”

“As your Governor, I want everyone in the law enforcement community to know that I’ll never abandon you for political gain,” said Cameron in a statement. “We cannot appease the anti-police movement that is sweeping this nation. Our communities are less safe as a result. Law enforcement needs to know that their Governor has their back. They uphold the law and keep us safe, and I’ll make sure they have the resources and support to do their job.”
