CRESTWOOD, Ky. (June 30, 2022) – Russell Coleman, Republican candidate for Kentucky Attorney General, has raised $320,475 from 413 donors, his campaign announced today. This is more than any other Republican Attorney General candidate in state history during a single quarter, according to records accessible on the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance.
“This is a team effort, and we are incredibly humbled by the support from every grassroots Republican, donor and endorser. 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,” Coleman said. “No candidate can do this alone, and every candidate stands on someone’s shoulders. I will never forget the people who are giving their time, resources and sweat to this team effort.”
Support continues to grow for Coleman’s pro-life, pro-family campaign to be Kentucky’s top cop. With experience as U.S. Attorney and FBI Special Agent, Coleman is the most qualified Kentuckian ever to run for Attorney General.
“I’ll put my experience to work defending our shared values, and my team will tackle the festering problems of violent crime and illegal drugs plaguing our communities,” said Coleman. “I’ve spent my life protecting our families at home and abroad, and I’ll continue working to earn the support of every Kentuckian who Backs the Blue, stands up for life and is committed to building a stronger Commonwealth.”
Coleman’s campaign has previously announced endorsements from more than 75 leading conservatives and community leaders, underscoring his unparalleled credentials for the position. The major fundraising haul in the first two months of the campaign sends a strong message that Republicans intend to hold the Attorney General’s office following Daniel Cameron’s successful term in standing for the rule of law and defending Kentucky’s conservative values.
