Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway released an ad Wednesday responding to an attack from Republican challenge Todd P’Pool, which alleges the incumbent tried to cover up a drug investigation involving his brother.
The 30-second spot features Conway addressing voters about the allegation, which he has vehemently denied for over a year. The attorney general repeats the explanation, saying he told his brother, Matt Conway, to “take responsibility” for any actions and advised him to obtain legal counsel after learning he knew about the probe.
“But that hasn’t stopped my opponent from completely distorting the facts to try and fool you. Mr. P’Pool, say what you want about me, but my family shouldn’t be part of this campaign,” says Conway.
