CRESTWOOD, Ky. (November 17, 2022) – The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), the national campaign arm for conservative candidates for Attorney General across the country, announced today its endorsement of Russell Coleman. With an unmatched record of helping elect attorneys general who respect the rule of law and support law enforcement, RAGA is the latest major national voice to join the Coleman campaign.
“Conservative Russell Coleman has dedicated his career to defending the rule of law and Constitution, which prompted the RAGA Executive Committee to endorse his candidacy for Kentucky Attorney General without hesitation,” said RAGA Executive Director Peter Bisbee. “Coleman’s depth of endorsements from conservative and law enforcement leaders, as well as his fundraising prowess, demonstrates the strength of his candidacy and ability to win in 2023. We cannot wait to have Coleman join our nation’s conservative attorneys general on the frontlines of the battle for a safer, freer, and more prosperous nation.”
RAGA joins other recent high-profile endorsements of Russell Coleman, including former Arkansas Governor and conservative leader Mike Huckabee, the Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), Citizens United PAC and Kentucky Congressmen Andy Barr and Brett Guthrie. To date, more than 100 Kentucky and national leaders have joined Team Coleman and the campaign has raised more than $500,000 since launching in May.
“I’m honored to have the support of these strong conservatives who Back the Blue and stand up for our way of life,” said Russell Coleman, Republican candidate for Kentucky Attorney General. “I look forward to continuing the work of Kentucky’s outstanding Attorney General Daniel Cameron and calling these patriotic men and women of the Republican Attorneys General Association my colleagues. Together, we will build stronger and safer communities for families in Kentucky and across the country to call home.”
Russell Coleman has proven experience forming strategic partnerships across jurisdictions to tackle tough problems. As U.S. Attorney for West Kentucky, he connected local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to take criminals off the streets. Russell was named to a Working Group of President Trump’s National Commission on Law Enforcement & the Administration of Justice and served on the U.S. Attorney General’s Heroin & Opioid Working Group.
