Campaign ads are out in Kentucky’s Third Congressional District.
Republican Todd Lally attacks "John Yarmuth's Greatest Hits" as if Yarmuth is a made-for-TV offer:
Meanwhile, John Yarmuth's first ad quotes the Courier-Journal saying he has done an "exceptionally good job," and touts work to expand children's health insurance and veterans benefits, secure funding for a new VA hospital, and an award from the Kentucky Reading Association:
An Insight Cable poll of the race shows Yarmuth with a 23 point lead over Lally, 53% to 30%, which the Yarmuth campaign said "is in line with the Yarmuth campaign's own polling."
“These are clearly positive results and it’s encouraging to see that the people of Louisville know I'm on their side," said Yarmuth in a statement. “This lead is in line with our internal polling - however, we know that voter turnout is critical this year and my campaign is hard at work every day to ensure we get out the vote and win big on November 2.”
Lally's other ad highlights his background "as a lifelong Louisville resident and combat veteran."
The commercial shows Lally walking outside of a closed business where he worked as a teenager.
“John Yarmuth has supported policies that have given us more debt, less jobs, and higher taxes,” said Lally in a statement. “The contrast between myself and Congressman Yarmuth couldn’t be clearer: I am an outsider who will fight for more jobs, not Nancy Pelosi’s extreme liberal San Francisco agenda.”
