Last year, Kentucky Republicans imposed a highly restrictive abortion ban on voters by overriding the veto of Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear. And this year, Beshear is using the ban to dismantle the Republican nominee seeking to unseat him, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
On Sept. 1, Beshear rolled out an ad featuring Jefferson County Prosecutor Erin White castigating Cameron for believing a “9-year-old rape survivor should be forced to give birth.” A little over two weeks later, Cameron flip-flopped on his staunch support for the law, telling a radio host he would sign legislation with exceptions for rape and incest if the Republican-led legislature sent it to his desk. The likelihood of that happening is next to zero, and everyone knows it, including Cameron.
