In second ad, P'Pool touts police endorsement, public corruption team

08/31/2011 04:02 PM

Republican Attorney General candidate Todd P’Pool is launching his second ad of the general election over Labor Day weekend, focusing on a tough on crime theme.

P’Pool’s second ad uses images of the Hopkins County Attorney dipping under police tape, a police raid of a hotel room and images of corrupt politicians taking money.

The ad, titled “Law and Order,” says P’Pool will be tough on crime and drugs and plans to set up a public corruption task force to investigate and prosecute public officials who misuse state funds or act illegally.

The ad also touts P’Pool’s endorsement by the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police this week. The group had previously endorsed Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway, P’Pool’s opponent, in 2007 and 2010.

The ad starts running tomorrow.

P’Pool fielded questions about his law enforcement credentials in a recent interview with Pure Politics.

Conway has yet to run TV ads this election cycle.
