Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellMcConnell: Trump White House will have ‘constraints’ Nearly 400 House bills stuck in Senate limbo McConnell-allied group: We'll back Rubio if he runs for reelection MORE (R-Ky.) is touting his conservative credentials in his newest ad, released one month ahead of his primary against Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin (R).
McConnell has held comfortable leads against Bevin in most polling, but is taking no chances on the May 20 primary and has been spending heavily to lock up a primary win.
He's expected to face Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) in the general election, where the two have been neck and neck in polling.
"It's curious that a self-described 'work horse' hasn't found the time to propose a jobs plan in the face of these trying economic times," Grimes spokeswoman Charly Norton said in response to the ad.
