FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Former University of Kentucky basketball
coach Joe B. Hall will star in a cable TV ad on behalf of
Democratic state Treasurer Todd Hollenbach during Saturday's
gridiron matchup between UK and the University of Louisville.
In the ad, Hall tells Kentucky sports fans that Hollenbach has
done a good job as treasurer, citing specifically $49 million in
lost property that the treasurer's office has returned to families
over the past four years.
Campaign manager Leo Haggerty said the ad will air on ESPN-U in
the Lexington and northern Kentucky television markets during the
game Saturday evening, and will resurface on network TV as the Nov.
8 election nears.
Hollenbach, seeking a second term, is challenged by Republican
K.C. Crosbie and Libertarian Ken Moellman.
