Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has bought six figures worth of airtime to back a television ad campaign beginning on Thursday. The buy marks the start of what could be one of the cycleâ€™s most contentious races.
McConnellâ€™s ads, up a year and eight months before his name appears on a general election ballot, will air for a week in the Lexington, Ky., and Louisville, Ky., media markets. The buy is in the â€œlow six figures,â€ a McConnell aide told CQ Roll Call.
Democrats framed the early ad buy as a sign of weakness.
â€œRunning campaign commercials almost two years before an election is an unprecedented admission of fear for a sitting senator,â€ Dan Logsdon, the chairman of the state Democratic Party, said in a statement.
