LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell has prepared his first re-election campaign commercial with nearly a year to go before the election.
State auditor Crit Luallen says it indicates that McConnell is bracing for a tough race next year.
One Web site is urging Luallen to challenge the Senate minority leader.
Another potential Democratic challenger is Attorney General Greg Stumbo. He leaves office early next year and has formed an exploratory committee for McConnell's post, allowing him to raise money.
