McConnell Gets Hit With Gun Reform Ad Campaign

A group called the Progressive Change Campaign Committee is hitting Mitch McConnell this morning with a new ad campaign in both Kentucky and Washington, D.C. It features Kentuckian Rodney Kendrick of Berea and is, well, just watch:




The initial advertising buy is $27,700 and it’ll appear on MSNBC, CNN and ESPN in Louisville and LExington.

They’ve also launched a website called GunOwnersForReform.com and have some new polling data from PPP:

Do you support or oppose criminal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands?
Support ………………………………………………….. 82%
Oppose ………………………………………………….. 13%
Not sure …………………………………………………. 5%
(Asked of 663 Kentucky likely voters, MOE+/-3.8%:)

Do you support or oppose banning assault weapons?
Support ………………………………………………….. 50%
Oppose ………………………………………………….. 42%
Not sure …………………………………………………. 8%
(Asked of 712 Kentucky likely voters, MOE +/-3.7%:)

Are you a gun owner?
Yes………………………………………………………… 64%
No …………………………………………………………. 36%
(Asked of 1,375 Kentucky likely KY voters, MOE +/-2.6%)

Should be interesting to see how this plays out.
