3.) Daniel Cameron's Historic Win
By RXUYDC [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons
Daniel Cameron made two major firsts in the race for Kentucky Attorney General. He is the first Republican to win the seat in 70 years and he is the state's first African American attorney general.
Although Republican Governor Matt Bevin apparently lost the race for governor, his defeat to a member of Kentucky's most well-known political family (the Beshears) and an unpopular first term in office filled with unforced errors was not unexpected, even if it is disappointing.
But Kentucky Republicans can hold their heads high having won five of the six statewide elected offices.
