The ad attacks McConnell for agreeing to the deal when it did not include defunding Obamacare (a point Senate Conservatives Fund has attacked McConnell on numerous times before).

"Conservatives asked Mitch McConnell to lead the fight against Obamacare. He didn't listen," the voiceover in the ad, titled Kentucky, said. "Instead, McConnell helped Barack Obama and Harry Reid fund Obamacare. Now Kentucky families are paying the price. Premiums up, lost coverage, even lost jobs. When Kentucky needed Mitch McConnell the most, he let us down."

The $330,000 ad buy is set to run statewide on broadcast and cable television from Oct. 30 to November 12.

In a tweet, National Republican Senatorial Committee Communications Director Brad Dayspring called the ad one of the "dumbest" of the election cycle.
