As a political junkie, I like good campaign ads. Matt Bevin, who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Republican primary in Kentucky, is out with a powerful new ad that reminds voters how Senator McConnell originally made his way to Washington.
Using McConnell’s own words from 1984, Bevin reminds voters McConnell charged Walter “Dee” Huddleston, his incumbent opponent:
“The Kentucky Senior Senator voted 20 times since he’s been there for spending money that we didn’t have. In other words, increasing the debt ceiling or for budget deficits.
“And now as we move toward the election year, he complains about the deficits and acts like a fiscal conservative. We’re all suffering. And our future as Kentuckians depend on obviously people like our Senator, who has let us down.
