American Chemistry Council Promoting McConnell

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The American Chemistry Council is running a TV ad in Kentucky promoting Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell as a leader who knows how to get results in Washington.

The McConnell ad comes at a time when the five-term incumbent is being attacked by GOP primary foe Matt Bevin. The new ad is running in Louisville, Lexington and Bowling Green.

American Chemistry Council spokeswoman Anne Kolton said the group is running similar TV spots this summer on behalf of Democratic Sens. Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Tom Udall of New Mexico and Republican Reps. Fred Upton of Michigan and Mike Simpson of Idaho.

Kolton said the organization is spending "six figures" to run the McConnell ad that will remain on the air for three weeks.
