FANCY FARM, KY (WAVE) – Sen. Mitch McConnell, facing accusations of leading a "war against women," fights his critics by employing a powerful ally in an ad debuting Tuesday.
Elaine Chao, McConnell's wife and the former U.S. Labor Secretary under President George W. Bush, has recently faced a personal attack herself from a Democratic operative. She doesn't mention that in the ad, instead focusing her criticism on McConnell's opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes.
"Grimes' gender-based attacks are desperate and false," Chao says in the ad. "Alison, supporting the Obama agenda isn't pro-women. It's anti-Kentucky."
