Managing to lose this race was quite a feat by the Kentucky GOP. President Trump carried the State by 62.09% in 2020.
No one dares mention the obvious reason: in 85% white Kentucky, as elsewhere, whites are fed up with Black Privilege.
The defeated Republican, Daniel Cameron, is black. The Kentucky GOP Establishment has been grooming him most of his adult life, including a stint as legal counsel to the unspeakable Senator Mitch McConnell (China Asset-KY).

Proving my analysis is a puerile commentary rushed into print at the Louisville Courier Journal: Cameron lost to Beshear, and the least Trumpy Republican won. Is Trump’s influence waning? by Scott Jennings, November 8, 2023.
The rest of the GOP ticket won by anywhere from 14 to 22 points. Other than Cameron, Republicans outkicked their generic ballot coverage in races that generally attracted little money and advertising.
(Jennings does note
Beshear’s path was eased by a crushing fundraising advantage.
As of this writing, Beshear had raised around $18 million for the cycle compared to Cameron’s $4.8 million
which raises the question why his margin did not increase over 2019.)

This Republican Establishment nomination of offensive candidates is not new, as Washington Watcher II pointed out in 2022: Unmentioned In Post-Midterm Mayhem, GOP Consultants’ Diversity Push Didn’t Pay Off.
The White Turnout and Vote are what matters for GOP victories. Spitting in their face is foolish.
Of course, GOP consultants can still get rich off credulous Big Donors.
For the moment.
