Conway Comments On Mongiardo Audio Posting

From Kentucky Public Radio's Tony McVeighKentucky Attorney General Jack Conway is reacting to unflattering audio purportedly of his Democratic U-S Senate opponent, Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo.Expletive-laced audio of Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo allegedly criticizing Gov. Steve Beshear for lukewarm support of Mongiardo’s U-S Senate campaign recently appeared on the Internet.Both Mongiardo and the governor downplayed it, saying the audio was doctored and they remain highly supportive of each other.What does Attorney General Jack Conway think of the audio? “I don’t get excited by these sorts of things," he said Monday. "There are ebbs and flows in a campaign. And I’m gonna stay focused on the issue at hand and try to run the type of campaign that gives the people of Kentucky what they deserve in terms of representation for this particular U-S Senate seat.”Conway and Mongiardo are the Democratic frontrunners in the Senate race, which also features several Republican candidates. The primary is next May.
