‘The only one I trust to keep Kentucky families safe as our next Attorney General’
CRESTWOOD, Ky. (Dec. 6, 2022) – U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), a stalwart champion for conservative principles and Kentucky values in the Senate, endorsed Russell Coleman for Attorney General today. Coleman is a pro-life, pro-family and pro-police Republican who served as U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky and an FBI Special Agent. Senator Paul and Coleman share a commitment to supporting the men and women of law enforcement and protecting Kentucky families from violent crime, illegal drugs and threats to their way of life.
“Democrats nominated a radical leftist who wanted to defund the police against me, and they are apparently planning to do it in this race as well. Kentuckians overwhelmingly rejected that in 2022. To protect our families and preserve our liberties, we must do the same again in 2023. That’s why I’m announcing my endorsement of Russell Coleman to be Kentucky’s next Attorney General,” said Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. “I was proud to support Russell’s nomination and unanimous Senate confirmation as U.S. Attorney, where he made major strides against crime in Kentucky. Russell is who I trust to keep Kentucky families safe as our next Attorney General.”
Last month, Senator Paul was reelected to a third term over a progressive Democrat in a major 24-point victory. Senator Paul won 117 of Kentucky’s 120 counties.
Senator Paul joins more than 100 state and national conservative leaders, the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the Republican Attorneys General Association and Kentucky Congressman Andy Barr and Brett Guthrie in endorsing Russell Coleman to be our state’s next top cop. Since launching his campaign, Russell has already raised more than $500,000.
“Senator Rand Paul is one of the most consistent conservative leaders in Kentucky and the nation, and I am incredibly grateful to have his support,” said Russell Coleman, Republican candidate for Attorney General. “Protecting Kentucky families will take leadership and collaboration at the local, state and federal level. If I’m elected to be Kentucky’s next Attorney General, I will work with Senator Paul to put an end to the violence, cut off the flow of deadly drugs and uphold our conservative values.”
