What’s interesting about this new Beshear-Abramson ads?
Jerry Abramson claiming he’s going to help large and small businesses stay open. Never mind that he has a 30-year history of doing the opposite in Louisville. Sinking local business in favor of giving millions to Cordish, which has been a complete disaster. You’ll note that CN|2 didn’t bother to examine any of that.

The next ad isn’t so terrible. Once you get over the fact that the plan all along was to help a business get a tax break or two for the sole purpose of using it in a campaign ad:
Spin machine will claim these ads are miraculous and the gospel in 3, 2…
P.S. Don’t forget that Abramson has a history of being anti-labor. You’ll just have to roll your eyes hard when labor holds its nose to back him because the hypocrisy will be ripe. And small business? Right, about that.
