LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Democrat Jack Conway has been trying to tout a plan for creating jobs, but the U.S. Senate candidate's proposal for a tax credit for companies that expand their labor forces may be getting lost amid the campaign chaos.

Political rhetoric in recent days has centered almost entirely on an attack ad that questions Republican Rand Paul's affiliation during college with a group that mocked Christianity and that suggests he worshipped a god he called 'Aqua Buddha.'

The topic has so dominated the news in Kentucky that it's been difficult for Conway to expound on any other issues, including his proposal for a "hometown tax credit" for businesses that expand their work forces.
