Gubernatorial candidate Daniel Cameron had a big day today.

Education plan

First, he unveiled his education plan. Calling it the “Cameron Catch-Up Plan,” it focuses on recovering learning lost during the COVID pandemic, improving discipline in schools, and a new salary floor of $41,500 for new teachers.

According to Olivia Krauth’s reporting, he “pleaded with educators who may have voted for Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear in 2019 after they were routinely criticized by former GOP Gov. Matt Bevin to now give him a chance.”

He also noted that his plan would require about $100 million in extra funding from the state’s budget.

Numerous educational leaders and elected officials have responded to the plan, including a statement by Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman.

FOP endorsement

Then, this afternoon, the Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Cameron for governor. (In 2019, they endorsed Beshear.)

As most voters in Kentucky know, Cameron convened a grand jury in the Breonna Taylor shooting by Louisville police, but the grand jury did not return any indictments for that shooting.

Cameron has also said that he opposes subpoena power for civilian review boards engaged in police oversight.

Berl Perdue, the FOP president, said “Cameron has been a friend to the FOP since the day he stepped foot into public office.”
