Voters in Kentucky made history Tuesday by electing Republican Daniel Cameron as their next attorney general.
Cameron is the first black person voted individually to statewide office, the first black attorney general, and the first Republican elected to the role in more than 70 years, according to Lex18.
Cameron, a relative newcomer in politics, defeated Democrat Greg Stumbo, a political heavyweight in Kentucky who was attorney general from 2003 to 2007 and as speaker of the General Assembly from 2009 to 2017.
Cameron won by a margin of 57.7% to Stumbo’s 42.3%
President Trump endorsed Cameron at his rally in the state on Monday and said “a star is born” when he brought him up to the stage.
