Conway's campaign releases jobs-centric Web ad with Republican dust still unsettled
05/20/2015 02:36 PM
His opponent in this year’s gubernatorial election may change after a recanvass, but Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway wasted little time in attempting to set a tone that Republicans have hammered on the campaign trail for months: Kentucky needs more jobs.
The 40-second Web ad released by Conway’s campaign features video from an Election Day press conference for Kentucky Democrats as well as news coverage of the event and his primary win over little-known candidate Geoff Young.
“My top priority will be jobs, jobs and more good-paying jobs for the hard-working Kentuckians all across the commonwealth,” Conway says in the ad.
The spot can be viewed here:
Conway unofficially bested Young by 58 points and 102,740 votes on Tuesday, according to the secretary of state’s website.
The attorney general is slated to face Louisville investment manager Matt Bevin, who narrowly clipped Agriculture Commissioner James Comer for an 83-vote win in the GOP primary on Tuesday. Comer has said he plans to request a recanvass.
