D.C. Republicans' First Senate Ad

More
Below is the first TV ad put together by the GOP's Senate campaign arm this year, obtained by The Atlantic. It will air in Kentucky, targeting Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway in his race against Rand Paul:





Kentucky's Senate race is one of the nation's most competitive. Both parties saw hotly contested primaries, and the race now features a Tea Party darling running in a state that favors Republicans, seeking to hold onto an open Republican seat.

Polling in this race is up in the air: CNN shows it dead even, while SurveyUSA shows Paul up by 15 percentage points.


No word on whether the National Republican Senatorial Committee has any other TV ads in the works.

UPDATE: The NRSC confirms that its first campaign ad will run in Kentucky.

UPDATE II: Statement from NRSC Press Secretary Amber Marchand:

"It's clear from numerous public surveys that Rand Paul continues to dominate the race in Kentucky thanks to liberal trial lawyer Jack Conway's eager endorsement of President Obama's reckless spending agenda in Washington, including his failed stimulus debacle and massive health spending bill."
