Beshear Ad Highlights Stand Against Washington, EPA

Responding to attack ads from an outside GOP group, Democratic Governor Steve Beshear is highlighting his position against federal regulations in a new commercial.

Last month, the Ohio-based group Restoring American began running ads accusing Beshear of supporting regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency, but the governor says he has stood up to “both political parties” in Washington to protect jobs in the coal industry.

“That’s why I sued the EPA and that’s why I’ll continue fighting to get our people back to work,” says Beshear.
