With his first ad of the Republican primary for governor Alan Keck, the mayor of Somerset, is positioning himself as the adult in the room.
His ad is airing across the state, and features Keck switching off a television playing clips of attack ads from political action committees supporting the frontrunners in the race, Kelly Craft and Daniel Cameron.
“Kentuckians deserve a race about the issues, but instead they are getting teddy bears and insults,” Keck said. “We have serious problems in Kentucky and we need serious leaders to solve them. Instead of demonizing each other, let’s have a real conversation about the issues and how we are going to move Kentucky forward together.”
Keck is one of a dozen Republicans vying for the GOP nomination on May 16.
