“I appreciate your leadership, I’m grateful for you,” Cameron said, “I hope I can continue to serve right along side them with my effort to be the next governor of Kentucky.”

Early polling is showing an extremely tight race for governor with support for Cameron and Democrat incumbent Gov. Andy Beshear running about even. Cameron urged his supporters to provide any help they can to assist with his campaign.

“The polling isn’t a reflection of me, it is a reflection of you all in the room,” Cameron said. “You all want to see a course correction and a change of direction in the leadership of this state. You want someone who reflects the value of Lincoln and all 120 counties. I am a reflection of you all. At the end of the day, it is about the decision you make to get engaged, to call your neighbors, to talk about the importance of this race and what is at stake. To cross the vision line in first place I am going to need your help, This race is about what you want for this decade and decades to come. You don’t want leadership that stands with Joe Biden and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.”

Cameron was critical of crime and workforce participation under Beshear’s leadership.

“Violent crime is high, and workforce participation is low,” Cameron said. “Depending on which metric you look at, Kentucky either has the 46th or 47trh lowest workforce participation rate in the county. On top of that, since the governor took the oath of office there are 27 thousand fewer Kentuckians working in our commonwealth. Beshear’s vision means our law enforcement officials are maligned by the far left. It means biological males can play in woman’s sports, that is the leadership of Beshear in our state over the last few years.”

Cameron said he believes churches should have remained open during the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020.

“There is nothing compassionate about shutting down churches when we needed them the most,” Cameron said. “There is no compassion in a governor who tells big business they can stay open while closing small businesses. There is no compassion in a governor who stands idly by while parents and grandparents go to their school boards with concerns about the education loss and gender ideology being taught in our schools and then the Department of Justice labels them domestic terrorists. That is not compassion that is complacency.”

Cameron says he plans to rebuild Kentucky’s board of education if elected.

“When Beshear came into office he essentially appointed a new Kentucky Board of Education,” Cameron said. “He handpicked members and they picked a new commissioner of the Department of Education, when the commissioner Jason Glass went before the general assembly and was asked if he had any thoughts or considerations about teachers who had second thoughts about the gender ideology being taught in schools, he said they need to find a new job. Having hardworking teachers with second thoughts about gender ideology find a different job is not the right answer. Kentucky can have a world class education system which supports teachers and expands opportunity for our students.”
