Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo returns to his 2004 U.S. Senate campaign for his first television commercial.
Mongiardo narrowly lost that election to Senator Jim Bunning. Now, in his first commercial of the 2010 campaign, the Democratic hopeful is going after Bunning again. Like his chief rival Jack Conway, Mongiardo attacks Bunning’s filibuster against extending unemployment benefits.
The ad calls Bunning’s actions a “disgrace” and says Mongiardo “stood up for Kentucky workers – taking on Bunning and Tea Party supporters.”
Here is Daniel Mongiardo’s commercial.

Mongiardo Campaign Launches First Television Ad
Mongiardo Led Rallies/Organized Effort Against Bunning; Stood Up For Kentucky Workers and Took on Angry Tea Party Supporters
Frankfort---The U.S. Senate campaign of Lt. Governor Dr. Daniel Mongiardo released its first television ad today. Called “Fighting for Us,”
The describes how Mongiardo helped lead the effort and organized rallies in Kentucky that helped put pressure on Senator Jim Bunning to back down from blocking unemployment benefits for 120,000 Kentuckians.
“Daniel Mongiardo was proud to have led the rallies and help organize the effort in Kentucky against Jim Bunning on behalf of unemployed workers and their families. Daniel stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Kentucky’s workers taking on Jim Bunning and his Tea Party supporters. That’s not surprising since Daniel took on Bunning in 2004, while some Democrats sat on the sidelines. Daniel could not sit idly by as the Bunning/Bush economic policies hurt Kentucky families. Daniel stood up for Kentucky families then and he continues to stand up for them now,” said Kim Geveden, spokesman for Mongiardo.
“Daniel believes that to lead on behalf of Kentucky families in the U.S. Senate, you have to be willing to listen to them, not the political insiders. Then you actually have to do the hard work it takes on their behalf. You can’t lead from Washington. Sometimes, you have to personally join the battle and stand shoulder to shoulder with your fellow Kentuckians to make their voices heard. Once again, Daniel’s actions demonstrate that Kentucky families can count on Daniel Mongiardo to fight for them everyday in the Senate. Daniel will put their interests ahead of Washington special interests and political insiders,” said Geveden.
