FRAKNFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate David
Williams is airing his first TV ad of the general election
campaign, a warm and fuzzy 30-second spot that talks about his
father's influence on him.
Williams, a Burkesville attorney and lawmaker, said in the ad
that began airing statewide on Tuesday that he has spent his life
trying to live up to the standards set by his father, former
Cumberland County Clerk Lewis Williams. He later confides that some
days he has met those standards and others he has not.
But along the way, Williams said, he has tried to help people
improve their lives.
Williams is challenging Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear in the
Nov. 8 election. The better-funded Beshear has been airing campaign
ads for months already.
