Democrat Fischer On Attack in U. S. Senate Race

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - U.S. Senate candidate Greg Fischer went on the attack Friday with a hard-hitting television commercial aimed at a nursing home company formerly run by his Democratic

The statewide ad features an elderly woman saying Bruce Lunsford is the last person in the world she would want in the Senate. It also mentions the turmoil at Vencor Inc., the nursing home company that Lunsford founded in the 1980s.

Fischer political director Kim Geveden said Lunsford's business past is a valid campaign issue.

Lunsford campaign spokeswoman Allison Haley says the ad distracts from the overriding goal of defeating Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader.
