Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway's campaign released the first two ads of the general election on Tuesday morning, highlighting Conway's eight years as the state's top law enforcement official.
In what his campaign says is a six-figure statewide buy, Conway's opening salvos in his match-up against Republican Matt Bevin are largely biographical, making note of his roots in Western Kentucky and mentioning his lawsuits against the Obama administration.
The ad "Seeds," begins with Conway saying that his family was in the seed business before pivoting to his work to cut down Medicaid fraud, take on Wall Street banks and the fact that he "sued Obama to protect Kentucky coal and farms."
"Jack Conway's proved he'll look out for all parts of Kentucky," the announcer says.
Never miss a local story.
The other ad, "Best Record," focuses entirely on Conway's record as attorney general and adds his calls to invest in education and small businesses.
Both ads close with the slogan: "Jack Conway for Governor, Moving Kentucky Forward."
