A Washington-based group has begun airing a TV ad in Kentucky criticizing U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's pro-gun record.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee said Tuesday it is spending an initial $27,700 to run the ads in Lexington, Louisville and Washington.
The ad features a Berea resident, Rodney Kendrick, who calls it "unthinkable" that guns meant for war could be used on civilians and children. Kendrick said McConnell has taken campaign money from gun manufacturers, and he asks "Sen. McConnell, whose side are you on?"
McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said the senator knew that "protecting Kentucky from President Obama's gun control agenda would result in a flurry of attack ads from left-wing groups."
