Republican Daniel Cameron made history on Election Day by becoming the first African American to be elected on his own to Kentucky state office.

The attorney general-elect is already moving on from making history to his plans once he starts his new job.

Cameron met with lawmakers in preparation for his transition.

"We're gonna get back to the bread-and-butter basics of being the state's top law enforcement officer," the 33-year-old said.

Cameron said he is ready to work with the former attorney general, and possibly next governor, Democrat Andy Beshear.

"I've worked with Andy in the past. We've both traveled in the hallways of the same law firm for a couple of years. I'll work with whomever wants to fight the drug epidemic," Cameron said. "I know during his time as attorney general, he certainly focused on this. I will continue to work with him."

During Beshear's transition announcement Wednesday morning, he said he is willing to work with Cameron and meet sometime in the future to discuss his successor's new role.

Cameron beat his Democratic challenger, Greg Stumbo, by more than 220,000 votes. He will be sworn into office in January.
