Ad by GOP Governors Stresses Williams’s Grit

Keeping the pressure on Democratic Governor Steve Beshear, a group fronted by the Republican Governor’s Association has launched a second advertisement in support of gubernatorial candidate David Williams, highlighting the state Senate president’s toughness and personalizing unemployment in the state.

The 30-second spot was paid for by Bluegrass Prosperity and depicts two men in a garage complaining about the state’s poor economy,, including the 9.6 percent unemployment rate, which is above the national average.

It’s piggybacking on Williams’s claim at a forum last week that he may not be the nicest lawmaker in Frankfort, but he’s “not running for the cruise director on the good ship lollipop” and the state needs “tough leadership.”
