Daniel Cameron may not be a household name, but that may change soon.

The 33-year-old wunderkind won a bitterly contested Republican primary for Kentucky attorney general, setting up a highly competitive race this November against Democrat Greg Stumbo, a former attorney general and state House speaker.

Cameron, a Louisville lawyer, formerly served on Sen. Mitch McConnell's staff and enjoyed the influential lawmaker's support during the primary election. (Courier-Journal)

"I'm honored by the votes I got all across Kentucky," Cameron said in an interview shortly after he was declared the winner. "It was a good night."

As for running against Stumbo, a veteran political insider from Floyd County, Cameron said, "It will be a striking contrast."

Stumbo didn't respond to a request for comment.


Winning the attorney general's office is a priority for Republicans who have watched Attorney General Andy Beshear, a Democrat, battle with the administration of Republican Bevin and thwart some of his initiatives in court.
