Ken­tucky Sec­ret­ary of State Al­is­on Lun­der­gan Grimes (D) is out with her first at­tack on Sen. Mitch Mc­Con­nell (R). Her new ad fea­tures re­tired coal miner Don Dis­ney, who asks Mc­Con­nell why he voted to raise my Medi­care his costs by $6,000. “How are my wife and I sup­posed to af­ford that?” Dis­ney asks.

After a long pause, Grimes chimes in, “I don’t think he’s gonna an­swer that.” (re­lease)

The pro-Mc­Con­nell su­per PAC Ken­tucky Op­por­tun­ity Co­ali­tion re­leased a new anti-Grimes ad sug­gest­ing the Demo­crat “waffles” on the is­sues. Speak­ing over spy-movie mu­sic, a nar­rat­or reads news clips that claim Grimes “hides from voters” then asks, “what’s she hid­ing?” The ad is backed by a $715,000 buy, and will run Ju­ly 8 through Ju­ly 16.
