The ads focus on McConnell's record on veterans' issues. The first wave of ads will ask Kentuckians to sign a petition "to oppose President Obama's plan to cut the military."
"This advertising is designed to educate citizens about President Obama's plans to slash military spending and leave our nation in a weaker position, and to urge Sen. Mitch McConnell-- who has a strong record of standing up for Kentucky's service men and women--to oppose those military budget cuts," a spokesperson said.
The ad says McConnell fought to bring a new VA hospital to Louisville, and for body armor and higher pay for troops
I'm committed to serving Kentucky's 350,000 veterans and I will fight for the quality health care, benefits and treatment they have earned. We must expand education and training opportunities for service members and veterans, facilitating public/private partnerships that help them translate their military skills for the civilian workforce. We must improve access to health care services, including mental health, prosthetic care and wound regeneration.
