LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican Gov. Matt Bevin is trying to keep the spotlight on Kentucky’s settlement with the manufacturer of the powerful prescription painkiller OxyContin in a new TV ad attacking his Democratic challenger.
The ad released Tuesday continues one of Bevin’s most frequent lines of attack against his opponent, Attorney General Andy Beshear.
The ad claims that Beshear “personally profited” from the case. Beshear has said he wasn’t part of the Purdue Pharma litigation team and his campaign says he did not make any money from the settlement.
