  • Kamala Harris Says ‘Nobody’ Should Be Jailed for ‘Smoking Weed,’ Despite Prosecuting Nearly 2K Marijuana Cases

    “Nobody” should go to jail for “smoking weed,” Vice President Kamala Harris said Friday, despite having prosecuted nearly 2,000 cases of marijuana possession, cultivation, or sale as California’s attorney general. Harris’s public flip-flop is likely due to the politics of a difficult reelection campaign in which the Biden-Harris ticket is losing to former President Donald Trump in 75 percent of 2024 swing states, polling shows. Harris condemned prosecuting those who smoke flowers while speaking at a roundtable event about cannabis reform with musician Fat Joe and Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D).

    Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY) said Wednesday on CNN’s “News Central” that Republicans anti-trans political ads were an example of “anger politics.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “You said this PAC is about supporting candidates who push back against the national trend of anger politics and division, and I wonder how you define, anger politics and division.”

    A new Emerson College poll out on Friday shows Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and Attorney General Daniel Cameron in a dead heat less than a week before the Kentucky gubernatorial election — both polling at 47%. The results are a shift for Beshear, who has had a significant lead in almost all polling leading up to the election. Earlier in October, he was polling at 49% in the same poll as Cameron sat at 33%, and 13% of respondents would rather vote for someone else.

    Many of the criminals who Democratic Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear released under executive commutation during the COVID-19 pandemic went on to commit new crimes, a report from the state’s government showed. The report examined the criminal records of the approximately 1,700 criminals that Beshear had released in April and August of 2020 to reduce the prison population during the pandemic. Of those released, roughly 70% went on to commit crimes, with 50% committing felonies within less than a year of their release. “I believe the last round of commutations was fairly successful at getting people back in society and making...

    Black Voters Matter Action PAC claims Kentucky Attorney General and Republican nominee for governor Daniel Cameron is "a threat to the Black community." A far-left group being funded by liberal billionaire George Soros is targeting Kentucky Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Daniel Cameron, a Black Republican, with an ad disparaging him as an Uncle Tom. Black Voters Matter Action PAC, which FEC filings show received millions from Soros' super-PAC, has been running the radio ad on a local R&B station based in Jeffersontown, Kentucky, describing Cameron as "Uncle Daniel Cameron," and accusing him of betraying his race by declaring "all...

    Four more years of Democrat Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear would be a “disaster” for the state, former President Donald Trump said in a video first obtained by Breitbart News, in which he praises Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) days ahead of the gubernatorial race.“Daniel Cameron is a young star who has done a great job as your attorney general, always being fair, but very, very tough,” Trump said in the ad, touting Cameron as someone who is “strong, reliable and loves your state and our nation.”Watch video here:President Trump Endorsement“Daniel is a tremendous fighter on crime, lowering taxes, saving...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) – Gov. Andy Beshear took to social media on Friday to respond to news reports that production at one of two electric vehicle (EV) battery plants planned for Hardin County has been delayed because of concerns about demand. The plants are being built by BlueOval SK, a joint venture between Ford Motor Co. and South Korean partner SK Innovation. “First, the full project is still on. Construction is continuing on both of those battery plants,” said Beshear in a video posted on social media. “The two biggest battery plants on planet Earth and all of the hundreds...

    Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron accused each other of taking extreme stands on abortion policy Monday night as they wrangled over an issue that's become a flashpoint in their hotly contested campaign for governor in Kentucky. During an hourlong debate at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Kentucky, the rivals fielded questions over education, taxes, public safety and the monthlong strike by autoworkers, which has spread to Ford's highly profitable Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville. The candidates tried to one-up the other in their support for public education. Some of their sharpest exchanges during the...

    All eyes are on Gov. Andy Beshear’s re-election bid against GOP challenger Attorney General Daniel Cameron. A lot of the state’s money is on it, too. Beshear’s campaign dwarfs Cameron’s in total cash brought in and on hand, the 60 day pre-general election reports show. The governor has brought in roughly $15 million into his general election campaign since the primary ended in mid-May compared to Cameron’s $2.8 million.

    Gov. Andy Beshear's (D-KY) latest campaign ad attacked Republican candidate Daniel Cameron for opposing rape and incest exceptions to Kentucky's abortion bans seven weeks before the 2023 gubernatorial election. Beshear released a TV ad Wednesday featuring a young woman who is a survivor of sexual assault, stating she was raped by her stepfather at 12 years old after years of sexual abuse. The woman criticizes Cameron’s abortion stance, claiming he wouldn't give women and girls any options.

    Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear began airing a new ad last week attacking GOP challenger Daniel Cameron for supporting Kentucky’s near-total ban on abortion. It’s a change in strategy for the incumbent, and many Democratic politicians in the South, who have avoided going on the offensive over abortion rights. Over his political career, Beshear has rarely gone out of his way to criticize political opponents for restricting access to abortion, usually sticking to broad statements and advocating for a middle ground. “I believe that Roe v. Wade had it generally right,” Beshear said last year after the U.S. Supreme Court undermined...

    ...Cameron was supposed to be a United States senator. It turns out that was mostly a media narrative, fueled by gossip around the timeline of McConnell’s eventual departure and the genuine excitement Cameron has generated as an avatar for Kentucky Republicans. In choosing to pursue this campaign for governor, Cameron has selected a more arduous political pathway, given Gov. Andy Beshear’s popularity and how rare it is to defeat an incumbent governor anywhere. (Just one incumbent governor in the country fell in 2022, none lost in 2020.) But at 37, Cameron is a man in a hurry – something that...

    According to a report from the Washington Times, should Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) decide to step down due to health concerns, Kentucky's Democratic governor already has already made the constitutional case that he can pick a Democrat to fill the seat despite a law the state GOP majority passed in 2021. With questions being raised about how long the senior Republican will remain in Congress after an incident last week where he stood stock-still and appeared unable to speak before reporters -- only to be led away by some of his GOP colleagues -- attention in Kentucky has...

    After his second public freeze up in about five weeks, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) fitness for office is under renewed scrutiny. But his quest to stay in leadership—or the quest of those around him to keep him in leadership, as it may be—could actually stem from a potential threat by Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D). Kentucky, until recently, was a state that allowed the governor to fill a vacancy, regardless of party. This led McConnell, now 81, to urge the Republican-led state legislature to pass a new bill in 2021 that requires an appointment of the same party....

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had another medical episode in Covington, Kentucky. The aging Republican leader appeared to have lost his train of thought, staring into the abyss for at least 30 seconds before aides helped. The press had asked the Kentucky Republican if he planned to run for re-election in 2026. This incident of mental paralysis is the second time McConnell froze at the podium in less than three months. He had a similar incident on the Hill in July, preceded by a fall at Reagan National Airport. McConnell joins the ranks of Dianne Feinstein and John Fetterman, two other...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) — As the race for Kentucky governor heats up ahead of the Nov. 7 election, Republican candidate Daniel Cameron has picked up a new endorsement. Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) President Berl Perdue Jr. announced Tuesday that the organization voted to endorse Cameron for governor. “Attorney General Cameron has been a friend to the FOP since the day he stepped foot into public office,” Perdue said. “We are excited to stand with Daniel and look forward to helping him during the remaining months of the campaign.” To reach an endorsement decision, more than 10,700...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) – During his weekly Team Kentucky news conference, Gov. Andy Beshear again voiced his opposition to gender reassignment surgery for minors and took a swipe at his Republican challenger, Attorney General Daniel Cameron, for emphasizing the issue. “Daniel Cameron has taken this race to the gutter in a way I’ve never seen,” Beshear said. “Right now, I think if you ask him about climate change, I think he’ll say it’s caused by children in gender reassignment surgeries.” Cameron has accused Beshear of lying about whether he supports transgender procedures for children. As Kentucky Today reported, the University...

    A new statewide poll released this week shows Kentucky Democratic Governor Andy Beshear leading his Republican challenger Daniel Cameron. The poll – conducted by the Republican-leaning firm Public Opinion Strategies for the Prichard Committee, an education-focused Kentucky nonprofit – shows Beshear up 10 points on Cameron with just over three months to go until the general election. It projects Beshear capturing 52% of the vote compared to Cameron’s 42% with the incumbent having cross-party appeal. The poll also indicated Beshear’s approval rating is 63% across the board with 38% of Republican voters and 60% of Independent voters polled approving of...

    The Kentucky Board of Nursing mandated nurses to take an " implicit bias " course to "recognize the history of racism in healthcare" and threatened "discipline" for failure to do so. The ultimatum to complete the "mandatory continuing education" training, which was developed by the Kentucky Nurses Association , forced nurses to complete the training by July 1. "They pretty much said we're all guilty of being racist, and we need to examine the way that we take care of patients and change our behaviors because we are giving substandard care," Rebecca Wall, a Kentucky certified registered nurse anesthetist with...
