LEXINGTON- U.S. Representative Andy Barr, R-Lexington, has released his first attack ad against opponent Amy McGrath.

The ad paints the former fighter pilot as “too liberal” for the sixth congressional district and uses clips of McGrath from various interviews and speeches.

It is the second ad released by Barr.

The race between Andy Barr and McGrath is tight, with Sabato’s Crystal Ball and Cook Political Report listing the race as a toss-up.
