RGA launches first TV ad linking Conway to Obama

Free Republic

The Republican Governor’s Association is launching its first ad of the gubernatorial campaign seeking to tie Democratic candidate Jack Conway to President Barack Obama.

The ad titled: “Vague” is running statewide in what the RGA is calling a significant ad buy across broadcast and cable networks.

In the spot the RGA follows a similar track that has been used against Conway in past Elections. The group attempts to tie Conway to Obama saying the two Democrats are similar in their “vague promises.

The RGA ad specifically targets Conway over cap and trade. Cap-and-trade is essentially putting a limit on greenhouse gas emissions and letting producers trade credits to meet standards, a global warming reduction measure pushed by Obama.

The RGA argument stems back to Conway’s 2010 run for U.S. Senate against Rand Paul, when the GOP assaulted Conway for flip-flopping on the issue.

Several stories from 2009, including one from the Paducah Sun, said Conway did favor the reduction measure, though his campaign contended the story was wrong in 2010 when asked by the Lexington Herald-Leader.
