The ad highlights how Sen. McConnell has been a champion on behalf of Kentucky coal families who continue to suffer from President Obama’s ‘War on Coal.’

“We want to go in a different direction. We want to have an America that celebrates success, gets jobs for people who are hurting, and that stops the ‘War on Coal’ now,” says Sen. McConnell. “Barack Obama will be gone in three years, but coal will still be in the ground. We are going to have a future when we get past this administration.”
