FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The conservative Madison Project is running a radio ad this week in southeastern Kentucky criticizing Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell who the group contends is slow to take stands on important issues.
The spot, airing in conjunction with the World Chicken Festival in London, calls McConnell "the biggest chicken of all."
McConnell, running for a sixth term, has faced attacks from liberal and conservative groups as well as from GOP primary challenger Matt Bevin and Democratic front-runner Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Drew Ryun, political director of the Madison Project, charged that McConnell acts like a bystander on issues until he figures out the most politically advantageous position. The McConnell camp dismissed the attack, saying the Madison Project has apparently decided that they make more money attacking conservatives than by pressuring Democrats.
