Audio endorsement for Senator Mitch McConnell

Working closely with the Kentucky Optometric Association, the AOA ran radio spots on stations across Kentucky promoting Sen. Mitch McConnell's longtime support for optometry and its patients. With AOA and KOA backing, the Republican incumbent won 56 percent of the vote in the Blue Grass State, thereby paving his way as the likely majority leader in the Senate next year.
