Daniel Cameron is a rising star in the Republican Party. Barely in his thirties, the Kentucky native is vying to become the Bluegrass State’s next attorney general.
He also happens to be an African American, giving him greater authority to speak on the hot button issue of race.

African-American Kentucky attorney general candidate Daniel Cameron pushed back against the “narrative that Republicans don’t embrace folks that look like me” during a Thursday night appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
President Donald Trump has endorsed Cameron in what has become a contentious raceagainst Democrat Greg Stumbo for the state’s attorney general post, and Cameron in turn defended the president against charges of racism from the left.
“Look, my message is pretty simple,” Cameron said. “The Democratic Party needs to stop telling black Americans how to think. I’m a proud Republican, I’ve certainly been a Republican all my life. I registered as a Republican at 18 years old. I believe in the values of this party. I’m proud to stand with Donald Trump, who endorsed me recently, and help him fight illegal immigration, stand up for the sanctity of life, and fight against socialism, so I have heard worse but this is not about me, this is about standing up and saying enough is enough.”
“The black community is told day in and day out that they have to speak with one voice and that’s the voice of the Democratic Party,” he continued, adding that a “diverse group of folks” are needed on both sides. “I’m a Republican and proud of it and stand with our president day in and day out.”
