05/10/2011 10:20 AM

Republican Secretary of State candidate Hilda Legg is cashing in on her fundraising advantage over her opponent, Bill Johnson, to launch TV and radio ads in the final week before the May 17 primary.

The ads, 30 seconds for TV and one minute for radio, are nearly identical. Both open with Legg’s experience of working in former President Ronald Reagan’s administration, where she worked in the U.S. Department of Education.

The ads say that when “Ronald Reagan asked her to serve in his administration, Hilda Legg answered the call of public service.”

The ads also say Legg will protect from voter fraud and plans to “keep government out of the way” of business.

The ads are running in Louisville, Lexington and Bowling Green on both radio and TV, Julia Bright, campaign manager for Legg, told Pure Politics. They will run until the May 17 primary and were produced by the Strategy Group for Media, the same organization would produced her opponent’s radio ad.

The ads started last night.

Here’s the Legg TV ad:

Legg’s radio ad comes one week after her primary opponent, Johnson, went up with his first radio ad.
