FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Two Democratic groups say they will air a TV ad in Kentucky attacking U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell who faces re-election next year.

Senate Majority PAC and Patriot Majority USA released a 30-second spot Thursday morning that shows a clip of McConnell saying he has "lived on a government salary for 30 years." It then charges that McConnell has voted to raise his own pay and to cut Medicare for senior citizens.

McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said the ad shows "Barack Obama's allies" are desperate to attack Kentucky's longest serving U.S. senator.

The groups said the ad, which was to begin airing Thursday, will be part of a long-term initiative that will include radio spots as well as outreaches online, through the mail and via telephone.
