In trying to win his second full term in the Senate, Perry Clark, a Louisville Democrat, faces his toughest challenge yet, from well-known and well-funded real estate developer Chris Thieneman. And neither candidate is holding back.
Thieneman had out raised the incumbent by $100,000 by earlier this month. But Clark got some help from the Kentucky Democratic Party with two ads released in the Louisville television markets.
