Kentucky: Lunsford on the Air as Fischer Raises $1 Million

Posted April 7, 2008 at 6:40pm

Businessman and former gubernatorial candidate Bruce Lunsford went on the air last week with his first television ad in the Democratic primary campaign to earn the right to challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R).

Lunsford’s “Bottom Line” ad focuses on a theme of change from politics as usual in Washington, D.C. It was released just one day after Lunsford picked up the endorsement of retired Lt. Col. Andrew Horne, who dropped out of the Democratic primary race in February.

Meanwhile one of Lunsford’s remaining party rivals, businessman Greg Fischer (D), announced over the weekend that he had raised more than $1 million in less than three months since joining the race.

Fisher’s campaign told The Associated Press that more than $750,000 came from in-state contributions.
