KDP launches social media ads targeting Bevin as 'pathological liar'
07/08/2015 06:01 AM
The Kentucky Democratic Party has launched its first targeted digital ad against Matt Bevin piggybacking on U.S. Mitch McConnell’s 2014 GOP primary campaign’s efforts to label the Republican candidate a “pathological liar.”
The KDP has strung together a video featuring news clips and interviews targeting Bevin on tax delinquencies; his attendance at a pro-cockfighting rally; claims that he attended MIT; and others.
“Matt Bevin’s flagrant dishonesty, deceit and self-interested political agenda is exactly why Kentuckians cannot trust him to look out for us as governor,” said Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Hughes in a statement. “Whether Bevin is lying about his taxes or his attendance at a cockfighting rally, Republicans were absolutely right when they labeled him an ‘East Coast Con Man’ and a ‘Pathological liar.’ And until Bevin stops stubbornly hiding his tax returns, his campaign will continue to be dogged by one simple question: what else is Bevin hiding?”
The ad is digitally targeted to Kentucky gubernatorial voters engaging in the race through Facebook and Twitter.
