LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is getting credit for protecting aluminum factory jobs in a TV ad released by his campaign.
The ad debuting Wednesday across Kentucky focuses on McConnell's efforts to pass fair trade legislation.
It features Cardinal Aluminum CEO Chip Edwards, who says illegal trade practices by Chinese companies threatened jobs at his Louisville plant. He says McConnell took action to hold the Chinese companies "accountable" and helped save the jobs.
McConnell backed legislation allowing the Commerce Department to continue imposing duties on imports from countries including China.
The commercial comes one day after his Democratic challenger, Alison Lundergan Grimes, released an ad featuring a coal miner questioning McConnell's commitment to job growth.
Grimes' campaign said Wednesday that McConnell has supported tax breaks that encouraged companies to ship jobs overseas.
