    A liberal Super PAC that counts billionaire George Soros as a major donor is running racially charged ads in Kentucky against Republican Daniel Cameron, who says his Democrat opponent should condemn the "racist and hateful" attacks being aired ahead of next month's election.

    The ad from Black Voters Matter Action PAC, an electioneering group that spends millions in support of Democrat candidates, is up with an ad that refers to Cameron as "Uncle Daniel Cameron," and uses the saying, "Skinfolk ain't kinfolk" - a refrain used by black liberals to suggest that anyone who disagrees with them politically is a race traitor.

    Black Voters Matter Action PAC has thrown its resources into Kentucky, which is one of just a few states slated to hold major elections next month. The Super PAC has been on the ground in Kentucky holding events in support of Democrat Andy Beshear, the incumbent governor running for reelection. Its ad ran on WMJM Magic 101.3, an R&B station in Jeffersontown, Kentucky.

    Cameron, Kentucky's first black attorney general, said he's faced similar "racist attacks" from the Left for years because he doesn't agree with their policies.

    "I never faced racism or discrimination while growing up or working in Kentucky until I decided to stand up to the national Democrat establishment." Cameron told The Daily Wire, which alerted his campaign to the radio ad. "I don't support their policies, so the Left attacks me for my skin color."

    "I believe here in Kentucky you shouldn't be judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of your character. The same cannot be said of Joe Biden, out-of-state, radical left interest groups, and the national Democrat Party, who think you can't be black and conservative. I never faced racism or discrimination while growing up or working in Kentucky until I decided to stand up to the national Democrat establishment," Cameron said.

    Cameron called on Beshear to should "condemn this racist and hateful ad being used to support his campaign."

    Beshear's campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the ad. Alpha Media, the company that owns the radio station, also did not respond to a request on its decision to air the attack ad.

    Attempts to reach Black Voters Matter Action PAC were unsuccessful.

    The Super PAC airing the ad has been active in southern states, and gained most attention for its work in Georgia's high-profile U.S. Senate races since 2020. Filings to the Federal Election Commission show a major source of its funds is George Soros, who through his Democracy PAC has given the group more than a million dollars.

    Cameron has long faced political attacks centered on his race. During his successful 2019 campaign for attorney general, the Lexington Herald-Leader ran a political cartoon portraying Cameron riding the coattails of the Ku Klux Klan.

    In 2020, the refrain that "skinfolk ain't kinfolk" was targeted at him due to his prosecutorial decisions surrounding the death of Breonna Taylor. At the time, Cameron called the attacks focused on his race "repugnant."

    The saying is credited to author Zora Neale Hurston, and is used in modern politics to suggest "that some people of color may be agents of white supremacy and may actively discriminate against people of their same racial group," according to scholars on the issue.

    Cameron told The Daily Wire that "in Kentucky, you shouldn't be judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of your character."

    Voters will choose whether or not they want to stick with Beshear on November 7. Polling in the state has been sparse, but shows Beshear in the lead.
