Former McConnell lawyer, Daniel Cameron, is running for AG.
2019 is an unusual election year in Kentucky. There are no national offices on the ballot - no president, no congressional offices, no races that send a winner to Washington. There are no local races. No county judges, sheriffs, mayors, city council or magistrates. No local races that bring out friends and families of candidates.
It's a year that elected representatives in the Kentucky House and Senate can run without giving up their positions.
It's a year for candidates with great name recognition and/or big families. It's a year with guaranteed low voter turnout.
In the race for attorney general, incumbent Andy Beshear is running for governor. That leaves an open seat. On the Democratic side, former attorney general Greg Stumbo is the only candidate to file.
On the GOP side, there are two candidates:
- Former Attorney General Gregory D. Stumbo (Prestonsburg in Floyd County)
