Cameron DKENTUCKY (10/10/19) — Daniel Cameron, the Republican candidate for Attorney General, responds to Jefferson Circuit Court ruling this morning affirming his eligibility to serve as Kentucky Attorney General:

“I’m not surprised we won but I’m thrilled to put this frivolous lawsuit behind us. It’s sad that Greg Stumbo stooped to this level," Cameron said in a statement. "He can’t win an election straight up so he tried and failed to cheat us off the ballot. For someone who talks about experience all the time it is funny that Stumbo and his cronies don't understand the law. But this was never about the law, it was always about politics. We are leading in the polls and leading in fundraising and we’ve got Stumbo on the ropes, so who knows what other nonsense he’ll try. But we are ready for all his tricks. I remain confident that come Election Day voters are going to once and for all retire a corrupt Greg Stumbo.”

Joseph Jackson of Louisville previously filed the lawsuit against Cameron, claiming he did not qualify to run for office because he had not practiced law consistently for eight years, with alleged gaps in his employment records.

In response to the ruling regarding Republican nominee for attorney general Daniel Cameron, Democratic nominee for attorney general Greg Stumbo released the following statement today:

“I am not a party to this litigation and had nothing to do with the lawsuit, however, now Mr. Cameron admitted under oath how little law he has practiced. The Office of Attorney General defends the state's laws, right up to the U.S. Supreme Court, and prosecutes massive multi-state litigation to bring much needed money back into the commonwealth. Kentucky voters deserve a candidate with decades of legal experience in real courtrooms, trying real cases at the highest levels. I have spent my life becoming a seasoned trial attorney in the courtrooms of this state on behalf of Kentuckians. My opponent has never even prosecuted a traffic ticket citation.”
