A fundraising group supporting U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s re-election will begin running a new ad Tuesday that accuses Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes of “dodging the tough questions.”
The Kentucky Opportunity Coalition, a 501(c)4 non-profit supporting McConnell, said it will spend $715,000 to run the ad from Tuesday through July 16. That figure is part of the $5.2 million that it and Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, a pro-McConnell super PAC, announced it would spend this summer.
The latest ad asks “Who is Alison Grimes?” using press reports to accuse Grimes of refusing to answer questions and being a candidate who “waffles on the issues.”
