Republican gubernatorial nominee Daniel Cameron will appear in Northern Kentucky this week for his first visit since winning the nomination in the May primary.
Cameron, the state’s attorney general, will appear at the Boone County Courthouse Friday at 10 a.m. for a meet and greet.
Cameron won the nomination after defeating 11 other candidates — a heated race that saw former United Nations Ambassador Kelly Craft spend nearly $11 million of her own money.
Cameron faces incumbent Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear in the general election. A Morning Consult poll found Beshear to be one of the most popular governors in the country, with nearly 60% approval amongst Kentucky voters.
However, a recent Republican poll found Cameron nearly even with Beshear, who made his first NKY visit of the campaign the Sunday after the primary in May.
