“Most of us don’t get caught up in politics,” women narrators say, trading off lines. “Between kids, bills, work there’s just no time for it. But this ObamaCare mess is scary."

The narrator goes on to declare ObamaCare results in patients losing doctors and unaffordable premiums. And she declares that McConnell is “leading the fight to fix this ObamaCare mess.”

“Mitch McConnell is fighting for us and for Kentucky’s future. Right now, that’s what we need,” the ad closes.

The Chamber is putting a “significant” sum of money behind the new ad. Their first in the race focused on coal and touted McConnell as a fighter for the industry from Environmental Protection Agency regulations.

McConnell is expected to face Democratic Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes in the general election. He’s also fighting off a primary challenge from businessman Matt Bevin, who’s charged McConnell hasn’t done enough to stop or dismantle the healthcare law.
