It includes black and white clips of the candidate saying she’s a feminist and progressive.
A voice finishes the ad saying McGrath is "too liberal for Kentucky."
McGrath responded to the ad via tweet.
When you can’t run on your record, this is all you got. @barrforcongress I sat on a runway on Sept 11 with missiles strapped to my F-18 awaiting POTUS orders to shoot down civilian aircraft to defend our homeland. What sacrifice have you ever made for our country over your party? https://t.co/zyuaEAmNs1
