08/07/2018 11:19 AM

One day after U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, R-Lexington, released an attack ad painting opponent Amy McGrath as “too liberal” for Kentucky, McGrath has released her first ad of the general election.

In the ad, McGrath once again plays up her military experience as a fighter pilot, while vowing not to take orders from the political bosses in her party.

The race for the sixth congressional district is getting tight with Inside Elections, The Cook Political Report and Larry Sabato moving the district from leans Republican to a toss-up.

The 30 second ad began airing August 7.
