FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is striking back at GOP primary challenger Matt Bevin with another TV attack ad.
It's the McConnell campaign's second ad bashing Bevin since the political newcomer took the first shot last month with a spot criticizing the five-term incumbent.
The McConnell campaign is strategically targeting Republican TV viewers with the latest 30-second spot that went up Monday on FOX News and some Kentucky cable television stations. The ad, which McConnell is spending more than $100,000 to run, accuses Bevin of a history of tax delinquency, a charge that he denies.
McConnell, Kentucky's longest-serving U.S. senator ever, also is facing a barrage of attacks from outside groups supportive of Democratic front-runner Alison Lundergan Grimes.
