Governor, attorney general feuding over coronavirus actions

Beshear says Cameron is trying to tie his hands in a fight to save lives.

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Partisan bickering is nothing new in Kentucky, but tensions are ratcheting up as coronavirus cases continue to rise. This time it’s a Democratic governor, Andy Beshear, fending off legal challenges from the Republican attorney general, Daniel Cameron, over his executive actions during the pandemic. 

Beshear says Cameron is trying to tie his hands in a fight to save lives. Beshear spent the previous four years as Kentucky’s attorney general mounting legal challenges to executive actions by a Republican governor.
