LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- Alison Lundergan Grimes has yet to announce whether she will challenge U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's re-election in the 2014 race, but that isn't stopping a pro-McConnell super PAC from unleashing a $260,000 ad buy against her.

The ad from Kentuckians for Strong Leadership was released Tuesday morning.  It describes Grimes as a "rubber stamp" for President Barack Obama's agenda, including "massive spending, Obamacare, the War on Coal."

KSL refers to Grimes as "Obama's cheerleader in  Kentucky."

 

Meanwhile, two national Democrat-linked groups are already spending more than a combined $250,000 to lambaste McConnell.   

The Patriot Majority USA ad, which is also backed by Senate Majority PAC, features a McConnell quote videotaped at a 2008 debate with Democratic candidate Bruce Lunsford.  "I've lived on a government salary for 30 years," McConnell's voice is repeated four times as the commercial characterizes McConnell's record as voting for bank bailouts and bills that included congressional pay raises while "cutting Medicare."
