Political attack ads targeted towards Sen. McConnell run early

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The political attack ads have already started to run more than a year and a half before next year's Kentucky US senate election.

A Washington-based group has begun airing a television ad in Kentucky, criticizing Mitch McConnell's pro-gun record.

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee says it's spending an initial $27,000 to run the ads in Lexington, Louisville and Washington.

McConnell's campaign manager says the senator knew that "protecting Kentucky from President Obama's gun control agenda would result in a flurry of attack ads from left-wing groups."
