Sen. Jim Bunning's (R-Ky.) filibuster is officially over, but it's still campaign ad fodder for the Democrats seeking to succeed him.
In his first TV ad of the campaign, state Attorney General Jack Conway goes after Bunning's move to block an unemployment benefits extenstion, along with the two Republican candidates who supported him for it.
Conway says "Jim Bunning used to be a great pitcher; now he's throwing high and wild." He goes on to criticize Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson and opthalmologist Rand Paul for backing Bunning up.
Conway had previosuly criticized Bunning's filibuster and launched a petition to get him to end it. Senate leaders and Bunning reached an agreement to end the stalemate Tuesday.
Conway still has a difficult primary in front of him, with polls showing he trails Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo.
