The Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police has endorsed Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron for governor over incumbent Democrat Andy Beshear.

In 2019, the group endorsed Beshear over incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. It also supported then-candidate Cameron for Attorney General.

“Attorney General Cameron has been a friend to the FOP since the day he stepped foot into public office,” said Kentucky State FOP President and Clark County Sheriff Berl Perdue Jr. “We are excited to stand with Daniel and look forward to helping him during the remaining months of the campaign.”

The organization canvassed 10,700 FOP members throughout the state, with the final vote taking place at the Kentucky State Caucus meeting at the National Fraternal Order of Police conference in Las Vegas this week.

The state union has endorsed candidates from both parties in the gubernatorial election, including Gov. Ernie Fletcher (Republican-2003), Gov. Steve Beshear (Democrat – 2007), Candidate David Williams (Republican – 2011), Candidate Jack Conway (Democrat – 2015), Gov. Andy Beshear (Democrat – 2019), Daniel Cameron (Republican – 2023).

The union also endorsed all Republicans for the other constitutional seats:

Republican Attorney General candidate Russell Coleman is running against Democrat Pam Stevenson.

Republican incumbent Secretary of State Michael Adams faces Democrat Buddy Wheatley.  

Republican auditor candidate Allison Ball is running against Democrat Kim Reeder.

Republican Agriculture Commissioner candidate Jonathan Shell is running against Democrat Sierra Enlow.

Republican treasurer candidate Mark Metcalf is running against Democrat Michael Bowman.
