Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron fired back at a group funded by liberal billionaire George Soros for a disparaging ad likening him to an Uncle Tom.
The gubernatorial candidate, a black Republican, slammed the “racist attacks” and called on his opponent, incumbent Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear, to condemn the radio ad as the two get set to face off in the November 7 election.
A local R&B station based in Jeffersontown, Kentucky, has been running the ad by Black Voters Matter Action PAC, a group that received millions from far-left Soros’ super PAC, Fox News reported.
“What’s up Kentucky? It’s election time, and all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk,” the 30-second ad begins.

“Over the past few years, we’ve taken to the streets to demand racial justice, to demand healthcare, and the right to make decisions about our body. And now, Uncle Daniel Cameron is threatening to take us backwards, the same man who refused to seek justice for Breonna Taylor now wants to run our whole state,” the ad says.
“We can’t let that happen. We won’t let that happen. On November 7th vote Andy Beshear for governor,” it concludes.
A fired-up Cameron came back swinging.
“I believe here in Kentucky you shouldn’t be judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of your character. The same cannot be said of Joe Biden, out-of-state, radical left interest groups, and the national Democrat Party, who think you can’t be Black and conservative,” the Republican said in a statement to the Daily Wire, which reported that it had first alerted the candidate to the ad.
“I never faced racism or discrimination while growing up or working in Kentucky until I decided to stand up to the national Democrat establishment. I don’t support their policies, so the Left attacks me for my skin color. These racist attacks have been happening for years and the media has either enabled or ignored them,” he added.
Instead of condemning the ad as Cameron had asked, Beshear’s campaign responded to an inquiry from Fox News Digital by referring to the governor’s remarks to the Lexington Herald-Leader on Sunday, that the ad came from “an African American-led PAC, so we’ll let them comment for themselves.”
Cliff Albright, co-founder of Black Voters Matter Action PAC even doubled down and defended the ad’s attack on Cameron.
“You don’t want to talk about the substance of the ad, he wanted to talk about the Uncle Daniel Cameron. And technically, we didn’t call him Uncle Tom right? To do so actually would probably be more of an insult to the actual Uncle Tom,” Albright told Black Star Network’s Roland Martin.
“It’s issue, after issue, after issue where he has shown himself to be just as much of a threat to the Black community as the staunches(sic) White supremacists. You don’t have to be White to pursue and reinforce White supremacist policies. As we said in the ad, all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk,” he added.
Cameron’s campaign told Fox News Digital that Albright’s comments were “disgusting.”
“Daniel Cameron holds the views of a traditional, conservative Republican. It’s disgusting that someone would liken mainstream Republican views to white supremacy. But this is where the modern Democrat Party has taken us: Kentucky’s first-ever Black gubernatorial nominee is being called a White supremacist because he is a Republican,” Sean Southard, a Cameron campaign surrogate said.
“That sort of irresponsible language is an insult to every conservative-thinking person in the state,” the Republican Party of Kentucky spokesman added.
