Matt Bevin drops first radio ads in GOP gubernatorial primary

03/26/2015 01:25 PM

Republican gubernatorial primary candidate Matt Bevin is dropping two radio ads with less than two-months to go before the May 19 gubernatorial primary election.

One of the two 60 second radio spots plays off of the NCAA basketball tournament and the “final four” candidates vying for the GOP nomination.

MAN: Bevin’s running for Governor?

WOMAN: He sure is. Bevin was the first candidate to come out with a Blueprint for a Better Kentucky, a jobs plan so good other teams are copying him.

MAN: Whoa, Matt Bevin is a proven leader.

WOMAN: Bevin’s plan will create jobs, cut taxes, repeal Common Core, and protect Kentuckians from liberal policies like ObamaCare and the war on coal.

MAN: Fresh ideas, conservative leadership … I like it! When I fill out my bracket for Governor, I’m definitely picking Matt Bevin to win.

The second ad is titled trust and also hits on Bevin’s Blueprint for a Better Kentucky — a seven point plan focused on a common conservative platform of cutting taxes, implementing right-to-work legislation, and fighting back against the Obama administration’s mandates.

Bevin’s ads are slated to start running statewide Thursday in what the campaign is calling a “substantial ad buy.”

Bevin, the former U.S. Senate candidate, faces Agriculture Commissioner James Comer, former Louisville Metro Council member Hal Heiner and former Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Will T. Scott in the May 19 primary.
