A family advocate in Kentucky thinks his state will be the setting of one of the more interesting gubernatorial races in November.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron (pictured above) has won the Republican primary to challenge Governor Andy Beshear (D) for office in the fall.

David Walls, executive director for The Family Foundation, recalls that Cameron successfully challenged Gov. Beshear's shutdown of churches during the height of the pandemic.

"His office has done a tremendous leadership job on defending some of Kentucky's very strong pro-life laws that have been challenged," Walls adds about Cameron.

He commends the attorney general for prioritizing "some of the core issues that are important to Kentuckians."

Beshear's record, however, is lacking in that department.

"Gov. Beshear has really shown himself, particularly these last two legislative sessions, to be completely beholden to the radical elements of the Left, and really the Democratic Party," Walls observes. "Gov. Beshear vetoed an important pro-life bill in the previous session. He vetoed our Save Women's Sports bill."

The state legislature was able to override the veto of that measure, which keeps the boys out of women's sports. Meanwhile, Cameron has been heavily involved in federal legal challenges against the law.

So, the two candidates, Walls concludes, offer quite the contrast.

Cameron was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and emerged victorious from a 12-candidate field that included former United Nations Ambassador Kelly Craft and state Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles. If elected, Cameron will be the state's first black governor.
