Louisville, Ky. (August 15, 2023) – The Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) announced its endorsement of Daniel Cameron for Governor in a letter released by the association earlier today.
“I am honored and humbled to receive the endorsement of the Fraternal Order of Police to serve as Kentucky’s next Governor,” Daniel Cameron said. “I’ve stood with our law enforcement officers every single day as Attorney General, and the FOP knows I’ll do the same as Governor. I am the only candidate in this race with a serious plan to reduce crime and support our law enforcement officers. Andy Beshear made Kentucky less safe by releasing nearly 2,000 criminals during his first year in office, nearly half of which went on to re-offend. This endorsement underscores the contrast in this race: I am the law and order candidate and Andy Beshear is the catch and release candidate.”
In the endorsement letter, State President Berl Perdue, Jr., noted Attorney General Cameron’s historically strong relationship with law enforcement.
“During his tenure as Attorney General, Daniel has had our backs,” Perdue said. “Our members know that he is available when needed, supports us in good and bad times, and ultimately offers the best platform for law enforcement to thrive in the Commonwealth.”
Cameron will host a press event with the FOP to formally accept the endorsement in the coming weeks.
