Ep 80: The Republican Candidate for Governor of Kentucky with Daniel Cameron
In this episode, I talk to Daniel Cameron, the Attorney General of Kentucky and the Republican candidate for governor in Kentucky’s 2023 gubernatorial election. Cameron is running against incumbent Democrat Andy Beshear during a cycle in which the Libertarian Party of Kentucky is not running a candidate, making Cameron an attractive choice for Kentucky’s libertarians.
He explains how Beshear mismanaged the response to Covid-19 and outlines his major policy proposals, which are centered around education, the economy, and crime. He aims to close the gap for Kentucky students that was created because of the pandemic by creating additional learning opportunities and addressing attendance, as well as incentivizing teachers to remain in the profession.
He seeks to eliminate the state income tax and reform welfare and other social benefits, and he wants to ensure that Kentucky is safe from criminal activity. He also states that he is in favor of the Defend the Guard movement and, as a general principle, believes in the 10th Amendment and states’ rights over the encroachments of the federal government and is politically aligned with Kentucky senator Rand Paul and congressman Thomas Massie. Even if you are not a Kentucky resident, this interview is well worth the listen!
