Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jack Conway continues to try to justify his strategy in airing a campaign ad that highlights opponent Rand Paul’s college days — specifically Paul’s association with a group that was known for writing satire about religion. (Click here for a review and analysis of the saga of that ad).
Most recently, Conway told cn|2 Politics that his now infamous “Aqua Buddha” ad was in response to Republican commercials he believes were untrue.
While Conway’s ad message on TV has been about Aqua Buddha and Paul’s college days, his message on the campaign trail has been completely different. This week found support from former Georgia U.S. Sen. Max Cleland, who railed against Paul over months-old comments regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act.
