IN THE CAPITAL, March 26, 2014 – Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was ridiculed on Tuesday for his newly-released campaign ad, which included a shot of Duke University’s basketball team winning the 2010 NCAA national championship.
In the ad titled, “Rebuild,” McConnell said he will work to restore opportunity and economic mobility for the middle-class. “If I’m given the opportunity to lead the U.S. Senate next year, I won’t let you down,” he said. “I will lead it with integrity; we will fight to the nail for conservative reforms that put this country back on track.”
“We will debate our ideas openly,” he added. “We will vote without fear and we will govern with the understanding that the future of this country depends on our success.”
But at the 1:09 mark, the ad featured a shot of Duke basketball players Jon Scheyer and Lance Thomas celebrating their victory against the Butler Bulldogs in the 2010 national championship.
