U.S. Chamber of Commerce to fund pro-McConnel ads

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will spend more than 180 thousand dollars to run a TV ad across Kentucky promoting Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell as a champion for the state's coal industry.

The business organization describes McConnell in the 30-second ad, as "a fighter" who opposes U.S. Environmental Protection Agency policies that harm mining.

The ad coincides with a pro-coal listening session in Pikeville on Friday.
