New McConnell Ad Links Obama “Allies” To Secret Recording

Sen. mithMitch McConnell, R-Ky., is seizing on a series of recent attacks against him for campaign ad fodder, tying a controversial liberal group to President Obama and decrying the “dirty” tactics of “liberals.”

“Mitch McConnell is Obama’s number one target. Because Mitch protects Kentucky from Obama’s bad ideas,” says a narrator in the 30-second spot. “Liberals will do anything to beat McConnell.”

The ad, which according to the McConnell campaign is a six-figure statewide buy that will run on cable and broadcast starting Friday, points to a secret recording reportedly captured by the liberal PAC Progress Kentucky as evidence of the left’s coordinated effort to bring McConnell down.

The recording, which was published recently by Mother Jones, captured a conversation in which several of McConnell’s campaign aides could be heard mocking his would-be political competition, Ashley Judd, for her struggles with depression and her religious beliefs. The senator was in the room but was mostly silent during these parts of the strategy session.
