Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin is urging voters to the polls in television and radio ads released Monday, appealing to the electorate’s sense of civic duty in his campaign’s final advertising pitch before Tuesday’s primary
Any mention of soiled political beds, the controversy of abuse allegations embroiling the governor’s race and food fights are gone.
Instead, Bevin’s television and radio commercials, which largely follow the same script, focus on what he says he can offer as the Republican gubernatorial nominee on issues like job creation, education and the Affordable Care Act.
“All these things will only happen if you wake up tomorrow and go to the polls,” Bevin says in the ad after directing viewers to his website for his “Blueprint for a Better Kentucky” plan. “It is your right, it is your privilege, and it’s your obligation.”
The spot, which the campaign says is airing statewide, can be viewed here:
Bevin is in a close race against fellow Republicans James Comer and Hal Heiner for the GOP gubernatorial nomination Tuesday, with polls showing former Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Will T. Scott trailing the pack in fourth.
