A new poll Thursday on Kentucky’s Republican primary race for governor shows Attorney General Daniel Cameron still leading the pack of candidates, though Kelly Craft is gaining ground and cutting into his margin.

The survey by Emerson College and Lexington station WDKY of900 very likely GOP primary voters shows Cameron leading with 30%, while Craft is in second with 24% and Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles is in third with 15%.

The survey is the first independent polling of the competitive GOP primary since Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy in January found Cameron with a huge lead — receiving the support of 39% of respondents, while Craft and Quarles trailed with 13% and 8%, respectively.
