C-J OpEd with an Agenda

I am a Reagan Republican. What exactly is Daniel Cameron's vision for Kentucky?

by Mark Wohlander | May 5 2023 | Courier-Journal OpEd

As a Reagan Republican, I waited throughout the months of the campaign to hear exactly what, if anything, Cameron would do if elected governor. Instead of hearing his vision for Kentucky, what we heard from Daniel over and over and over and over again was that Donald Trump endorsed him. While that might be enough for some voters, it falls far short of what most Kentuckians want and deserve for the future of Kentucky.

…In the end, every Kentucky voter, regardless of political affiliation will have to decide which candidate has the best vision for the future of Kentucky. Will it be Daniel Cameron who has yet to define what his vision for Kentucky is, or will it be Andy Beshear who has been tested throughout these past years during some of Kentucky’s most challenging times? Regardless of who is elected, Kentuckians have a right to expect a governor who to paraphrase Ronald Reagan has a vision that, “Kentucky is, and always will be, a shining city on a hill.” Read more.

Answering the author's request for dialog

You have an agenda, Mr. Wohlander. If you never heard from Daniel Cameron about his vision for Kentucky, you obviously never attended any of his campaign rallies. Here are some links to articles on his campaign website that reveal his position on numerous issues. In short, he is opposed to Andy Beshear's agenda, of which you approve.

Cameron’s current campaign theme is: Fight for Kentucky Values. A wonderful vision!
