FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) - Kentucky’s current Attorney General officially filed paperwork on Wednesday to run for governor in 2023.

According to our news partners at the Courier Journal, Cameron filed the statement of intent form Wednesday morning.

He joins two Auditor Mike Harmon and Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles on the Republican ticket.

“I’ve decided to run for Governor because Kentucky needs a leader who reflects the values of the men, women and children of all 120 counties,” said Daniel Cameron. “That’s not our current Governor.”

Cameron announced his campaign for Governor in this video shot at the birthplace of President Abraham Lincoln in Hodgenville, Kentucky.

“If you attend church or own a small business, you should know your Governor won’t target you and shut you down. You should expect a Governor who will stand up for life. And if you’re in law enforcement you deserve a Governor who won’t abandon you for political gain. As your Attorney General, I’ve proven that I will always defend Kentucky’s values,” Cameron added.
