    Daniel Cameron (R) outraised Gregory Stumbo (D) $140,333 to $101,153 in Kentucky’s attorney general election, according to the most recent reports covering the period from September 6 through October 6. At the end of the period, Cameron had $423,852 cash on hand to Stumbo’s $294,408 on hand. Cameron started the period with $480,476 cash on hand; Stumbo started with $240,015. ... Democrats have held Kentucky’s Attorney General office since 1952, but Kentucky’s election history suggests that the attorney general’s race will be competitive.

    Daniel Cameron, the Republican nominee for Kentucky attorney general, won a lawsuit Thursday that challenged his eligibility to serve if he is elected Nov. 5 because of his limited years of experience. An appeal is expected. ...in his decision, Jefferson Circuit Judge Barry Willett said Kentucky courts consider the practice of law to mean a licensed attorney who offers legal counsel, a definition that would include Cameron while he worked as a clerk. In 1995, courts made a similar ruling in favor of Democrat Ben Chandler, then running for attorney general, and allowed him to count his four years as...

    In case you haven’t fully gotten the message, African-American Democrats are really angry with any African-American Republican that embraces President Trump. Then, if an African-American Republican runs for an elected office, well, the racial slurs fly… from the Democrats. The race for Kentucky’s Attorney General is no different – just ask Daniel Cameron. Daniel Cameron is an African-American Republican candidate for attorney general in Kentucky. He came under attack by Dawn Elliott, a liberal female African-American lawyer and co-host of a political talk radio show, this week. Cameron is running against Democrat Greg Stumbo, a 67-year-old white Democrat who is...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - After a heated few days in the race for Kentucky attorney general, President Donald Trump is now weighing in to back the Republican candidate. "The Republican Party has a new STAR, his name is Daniel Cameron," Trump tweeted Monday afternoon. Cameron, who is the former attorney for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, won the Republican nomination with 55 percent of the vote. President Trump also tweeted that he supports Cameron's positions on crime, borders and gun rights when endorsing him. Cameron is in a heated battle with Democratic nominee Greg Stumbo, who is the state's former...

    FRANKFORT — The chairman of a House committee investigating the delay of an $11 million road project in Jessamine County has resigned after he says House Speaker Greg Stumbo denied his request to subpoena a Democratic lawmaker who accused Gov. Matt Bevin of retaliating against him. Rep. Jim Wayne, D-Louisville, submitted his resignation during a meeting Thursday, saying Rep. Russell Meyer, D-Nicholasville, ignored a letter requesting testimony under oath last week. When he wanted to subpoena Meyer on Nov. 30 because “his was the most severe accusation against the governor,” Wayne said Stumbo’s chief of staff ordered House Clerk Jean...

    House Speaker Greg Stumbo conceded to Republican Larry Brown tonight releasing a statement that read: “The voters have spoken, so I want to congratulate Larry Brown for his win tonight, and I want to thank the people of the 95th House District for a great career. I hope only the best for the district , my county, my commonwealth and my country.” Brown is an attorney from Prestonsburg. You’ll remember Stumbo was the subject of GOP website late in the campaign. The site hit the longtime lawmaker for votes he’s taken in the House of Representatives while also dredging up...

    The Republican State Leadership Committee is continuing its assault against House Speaker Greg Stumbo on the television airwaves, using his Election Day speech praising President Barack Obama last year and maximum contributions to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton against him. The 30-second ad, released Tuesday, is part of a six-figure buy that will continue through Nov. 8, according to RSLC. “Greg Stumbo said that while Obama killed coal jobs,” a male narrator says in the spot, referencing the Prestonsburg Democrat’s remarks last year that he believed in the “core values that (Obama) represents. “Now half are gone, and Hillary wants the...

    An attorney for House Speaker Greg Stumbo argued in a cease-and-desist letter sent Wednesday that an ad airing against him on WYMT-TV in Hazard should be pulled, in part, because public pensions aren’t funded with tax dollars. The assertion drew a rebuke from the chairman of the Senate’s budget committee, who said he hoped the correspondence was sent without Stumbo’s review because the speaker “obviously knows better.” The ad, launched by the Republican State Leadership Committee on Tuesday, focuses on Stumbo’s pension and the effects of 2005 legislation dubbed the “greed bill,” which allows lawmakers to combine their years of...
  • McConnell, Bevin say political changes on the horizon for Democrat-led House

    FRANKFORT - Two Kentucky Republicans who won lopsided victories over their Democratic opponents - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Gov. Matt Bevin - predicted Wednesday that the last southern legislative chamber in Democratic hands would soon come under GOP control. McConnell, who met with Bevin privately in the governor's Capitol office, called the political outcome "inevitable", and Bevin said Republicans would triumph in the upcoming election cycle. "It is a matter of time," Bevin said. "It's a function of when the House turns. It will happen in 2016. There's no question about that." ... "In my election where...

    tate Rep. Jim Gooch became the second member of the House Democratic caucus to change his party affiliation on Monday, informing leaders of both parties in the chamber of his decision to seek re-election as a Republican earlier in the day. Gooch, of Providence, has served in the legislature since 1995, chairing the House Committee on Natural Resources and Environment. In a lengthy statement, Gooch said he informed House Speaker Greg Stumbo and House Minority Floor Leader Jeff Hoover of his decision in an email, calling his move "a personal one, free of any negotiation for personal benefit to me."...

    Shortly after Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo learned of Rep. John Tilley accepting Gov. Matt Bevin’s offer to become secretary of the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, Stumbo charged the Hopkinsville lawmaker with delivering “a slap in the face to representative democracy and to those who elected (him).” Funny, I didn’t feel the sting. And here in Western Kentucky — where I am a registered Democrat and Stumbo is not — I find myself more annoyed with him trying to put words into my mouth than I am with anything Tilley has done. I do, however, wish Mr. Stumbo would...

    LOUISVILLE — House Speaker Greg Stumbo was speaking with members of the media in Louisville Thursday as official word came down that House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Tilley had accepted a role as the next Justice and Public Safety Cabinet secretary under Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. Tilley’s move to Bevin’s administration further wounds an already bleeding Democratic majority caucus in the House of Representatives. Democrats now have their slimmest majority since 1921 with a 52-47 lead in the chamber and three special elections to run in 2016. Talking with reporters, Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, called the moves by Tilley and former Democratic...

    Rep. Denny Butler of Louisville has switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. ... The impetus for Butler’s decision to move from the Democratic ranks to the Republican column may stem from retiring Rep. Larry Clark’s endorsement of Alan Gentry in the Democratic primary to replace him in the 46th House District... “I know there’s been a, sort of a feud down there in the district that Larry Clark represented,” Stumbo said at the Kentucky Association of Counties conference in Lexington. “I assume that has something to do with it, but I hope that he will reconsider. He comes...

    Their hopes buoyed by a conservative wave that carried Gov.-elect Matt Bevin to a 9-point win on Tuesday, Republicans are optimistic in their prospects to retake control of Kentucky's House of Representatives for the first time since 1921. "I’ve been on the phone since seven o'clock this morning fielding calls from the candidates that we’ve been recruiting and looking at districts where we lacked a little bit of interest to this point," state Rep. Jonathan Shell, chairman of the House Republican Caucus Campaign Committee, told Pure Politics in a phone interview on Wednesday. "And in those districts where we lacked...

    Top-ranking Democrat Greg Stumbo shares his unique hermeneutical approach to Scripture as it relates to the Democratic Party's widespread losses in Kentucky in 2015. The rambling speech also compares Hillary Clinton to a horse with a lady jockey and riffs on Jesus Christ's hypothetical political affiliation.

    Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction — something House Democrats are finding out firsthand. In the first week of the legislative session House Democrats chose to underrepresent the minority party in committee assignments. That action has resulted in legislation leaving committees in a hurry, and often with unanimous consent, to be debated individually on the House floor as the House’s top Republican pushes back. House Minority Floor Leader Jeff Hoover is using procedural objections to pump the brakes and slow the flow of legislation to the House floor for...
