Republican Matt Bevin is airing radio ads depicting Sen. Mitch McConnell as an out-of-touch Washington insider and characterizing their race as a fight for "the heart and soul" of the political process.
He's trying to unseat the five-term Republican Senate leader in the May GOP primary in Kentucky.
McConnell campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore says Bevin came out with the "lame attacks" just a day after he denounced negative campaigning.
One ad pokes at McConnell's longevity. It notes the Cosby Show was new and Cabbage Patch Kids were hot toys when McConnell was first elected to the Senate.
The other ad says McConnell symbolizes a system run by career politicians and their "Washington cronies."
