Comer begins airing new ads

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican James Comer says he's spending
more than a half-million dollars on statewide television ads over
the remaining days of the campaign for Kentucky Agriculture
Commissioner.
Comer began airing two new TV ads on Thursday. The state
representative and southern Kentucky farmer says he is going "all
in" with a TV ad buy that will span the remaining twelve days of
the campaign.
His Democratic opponent, Louisville marketing specialist Bob
Farmer, is targeting the population centers of his hometown and
Lexington with TV ads tailored to those areas. Campaign spokesman
Brian Wright declined to say Thursday how much Farmer's campaign
was spending on television advertising.
Campaign finance reports filed earlier this month show Comer
with more than $400,000 left in the bank compared to about $95,000
for Farmer.
