The White House took pleasure in gubernatorial candidate Daniel Cameron’s (R) failed bid in Kentucky at the hands of incumbent Gov. Andy Beshear (D).

Reposting a comment from Cameron on X from November 4, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates slammed Cameron for championing former President Donald Trump’s endorsement and ripping President Joe Biden’s so-called “Bidenomics.”

“The closing message below – from a candidate who’s [sic] Twitter bio starts with ‘Trump-endorsed’ – crashed and burned,” he posted:

Other Democrats chimed in:

Cameron and Republican allies, including Trump, worked very hard in recent days to defeat Beshear by linking him to Biden. Recent polls show Biden’s polling numbers rapidly sinking.

Cameron previously lost his 2019 campaign to Beshear and appeared to fare no better in 2023.
