Ads on both sides of Kentucky governor’s race feature Obama

Kentucky’s candidates for governor are both airing TV ads about President Barack Obama.
    
Republican nominee Matt Bevin released his first TV ad of the general election campaign on Friday. It criticizes Democratic nominee Jack Conway for supporting Obama’s policies, including the federal Affordable Care Act and a proposal that would have limited environmental emissions for businesses.
    
Conway said he has never supported the emissions law. He released an ad on Monday saying he stood up against Obama to protect Kentucky jobs. The ad touts Conway’s lawsuits against the Environmental Protection Agency over its proposed emission standards for coal-fired power plants.
    
Obama is deeply unpopular in Kentucky, a factor most political experts agree led to Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s landslide victory against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes last year.
