On Thursday, former U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman announced his candidacy for Kentucky’s attorney general. Earlier this week, current Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced he will run for governor.
Coleman currently practices law at Frost Brown Todd in areas of government and internal investigations, white-collar criminal defense, and government relations. He previously worked at the Department of Justice, FBI, and served as United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky.
Coleman is the first candidate to announce his race for attorney general in 2023.
In addition to Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement this week, Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles and state Auditor Mike Harmon have already announced bids for governor.
