LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Two weeks after the annual Fancy Farm picnic, the campaigns of the two Republican U.S. Senate candidates are squabbling over what Matt Bevin actually said at the event.

After a Mitch McConnell web video described Bevin as saying he was on the same team as Kentucky Democrats, Bevin’s campaign said that's just "another misleading McConnell attack ad."

The McConnell video shows that Bevin has contributed to Democratic campaigns and worked with a liberal Democratic U.S. Senator after his family's bell factory burned.



Bevin's campaign released its own video stating he's supported by Kentucky conservatives and leaders from a number of Kentucky tea party groups.
