DGA Launches “Cameron Doesn’t Care” Website 

 Today, the Democratic Governors Association announced the launch of to hold Daniel Cameron accountable for his failed record after coming out of a nasty and expensive GOP primary. highlights how Cameron has already failed to do his current job, giving Kentuckians plenty of reasons not to trust him:

  • Covering for Matt Bevin’s Pardons For Violent Criminals: After disgraced former Governor Matt Bevin pardoned more than a dozen violent criminals from prison, including a man who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting and nearly killing a 15-year-old boy, along with a convicted felon whose brother contributed to Bevin’s campaign — Daniel Cameron promised Kentuckians the scandal was “something we’ll look at.” More than 1,100 days later, not only has Cameron refused to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the corrupt pardons, he actively hired Bevin’s cronies involved in the scandal.

  • Attacking Public Schools and Pensions for Teachers, Police and Firefighters: Daniel Cameron strongly supports a scheme that would have led to an unconstitutional voucher system that means millions of taxpayer dollars meant for struggling public schools would be ripped away to benefit rich private schools. Furthermore, Cameron would have stood by Matt Bevin’s unconstitutional “Sewer Bill” that dismantled pensions for public school teachers, police and firefighters.

  • Lying About a Grand Jury: In one of the biggest and most closely watched cases his office faced, instead of putting politics aside and following the facts and his constitutional duties after the death of Breonna Taylor, Daniel Cameron choked, completely mishandled the case, and then lied about it.

“Time and again, Daniel Cameron has proven to Kentuckians that the only person he’s interested in fighting for is himself. If Kentuckians can’t trust Cameron to do his current job, why should they trust him as Governor?” said Democratic Governors Association States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien. “This website will serve as a resource for voters to see for themselves exactly how Cameron has already failed Kentucky by refusing to do the basics of his job when it mattered most. In contrast, Gov. Beshear brings people together and always shows up for Kentuckians to get real results.  After hobbling through a messy and expensive Republican primary, even members of Cameron’s own party agree he isn’t up for the job.
