Fancy Farm, Ky. (August 6, 2023) – Kentucky Attorney General and Republican nominee for Governor Daniel Cameron delivered the following remarks – as prepared for delivery – at the 143rd Fancy Farm Picnic, hosted by St. Jerome Church.
“Hello, West Kentucky!
Makenze and I are so glad to be back in Fancy Farm!
And how about my running mate, Robby Mills? This man is an absolute warrior for West Kentucky values!
Governor, it’s good to see you, but I know you have to feel kind of out of place at a Catholic picnic.
I know you feel more at home spending time with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
This Governor meets with anti-Christian hate groups more than he meets with the General Assembly… Am I right, Jason?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words…and there it is!
But when it comes to that photo, three words will do the job: “Andy, you’re fired.”
One thing I’ve learned about Andy Beshear…there’s a TV Andy and then there’s a Frankfort Andy.
TV Andy lies about his record on jobs, teachers, and crime.
TV Andy wants you to believe he’s never heard of Joe Biden.
But when the cameras aren’t rolling and he thinks you aren’t watching, that’s when Frankfort Andy–the real Andy Beshear–rears his head.
…He vetoes tax cuts.
…He fights for the Biden agenda.
…He demands that boys play in girls sports.
…He protects transgender surgeries for kids.
I’ve been watching Frankfort Andy up close for nearly four years, and I have just one question:
…Governor, are you auditioning for a job with Bud Light’s marketing team?
This Governor lies more than a Hunter Biden tax return…
…but here’s the truth: his record is one of failure, and it flies in the face of true Kentucky values.
Andy Beshear locked the schools and threw open the jails.
He sent the state police after Christians on Easter Sunday.
He closed down Main Street and bent over backwards for Wall Street.
There are fewer people working today than when Andy Beshear took office – and that’s a fact.
But folks, it doesn’t have to be this way.
We can recover for our children what Andy Beshear took from them.
We can restore law and order.
We can build a future that’s based on true Kentucky values…instead of the Beshear/Biden radical ideology.
Governor, I know you guys are obsessed with pronouns these days.
Come November, yours are going to be: “has and been.”
Andy Beshear and Joe Biden are liberal elites that have a lot of rules for you, but none for themselves.
This Governor has the audacity to lecture rural Kentuckians on right and wrong when he and Biden can’t even tell you the difference between a man and a woman.
They mock our faith, our families and our values…and they try to cancel anyone who disagrees.
Well, the folks of Fancy Farm have one response, Governor…Try that in a small town.
We need a Governor who will stand up to the woke mob…not cheer them on.
When that mob came to my front lawn … to threaten me … I refused to back down.
I will protect our children from radical gender ideology in the classroom and keep boys out of girls’ sports.
I will support our teachers and make sure they have the resources they need.
I will make sure our schools are about reading, writing and math, and they aren’t incubators for liberal and progressive ideas.
I will Back the Blue.
And I will hold Joe Biden accountable for his war on Kentucky coal.
This Governor has failed to protect your rights and freedoms.
And as Attorney General, I’ve taken him to court and won.
But the ultimate judgment will come from We The People.
We The People say the evidence is overwhelming…and the verdict must be “guilty as charged.”
My friends, by the grace of God, we are on the precipice of history.
But we must cast aside the politicians of the past who scramble to appease the woke-radicals of the present.
Let’s commit ourselves once again… to upholding the dignity of work…
…to the family as the foundation of our society…
…to respecting the rule of law and the principles of our Founding Fathers…
…and to once again be guided by the better angels of our nature.
With humility and abundant gratitude, I ask you to join us this November as we make history.
Thank you, and may God continue to bless Kentucky!”
