   FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is touting his conservative credentials in a new TV ad about a month before his Republican primary against political newcomer Matt Bevin, who is trying to rally tea party supporters to his side.
 
 

  The 30-second ad debuting across Kentucky on Monday calls McConnell a "genuine Kentucky workhorse."
 
   It promotes McConnell's role in negotiations that avoided across-the-board tax increases at the start of 2013. The ad highlights the five-term senator's push for legislation that preserved access to prime fishing spots below dams along the Cumberland River in Kentucky.
 
   It also continues two of McConnell's main themes -- his opposition to the Affordable Care Act and stricter federal regulations of the coal industry.
 
   Bevin, a Louisville businessman, questions McConnell's conservative record.
