Former U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman is crossing a significant fundraising milestone in the race for Kentucky Attorney General.
Coleman announced he raised $320,000 in his first fundraising quarter in the race, a historic single quarter sum from a Republican, according to his campaign. Current Attorney General Daniel Cameron was the first Republican to hold the post in 70 years.
“This is a team effort and we are incredibly humbled by the support from every grassroots Republican, donor and endorser,” Coleman said in a statement. “We have learned over the past four years how vital it is to have a strong conservative in the AG’s office, and we are proud to build on that legacy.”
No other Republican or Democratic candidates are currently in the open seat race. U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has close ties to Coleman and has been appearing at some of his fundraisers.
