Following a set of television advertisements attacking his opponent, Democratic mayoral candidate and Metro Councilman Jim King, D-10, continues to call out businessman Greg Fischer, this time in a mailer that ties the Democratic front-runner to former Republican Congresswoman Anne Northup.
Check it out:
When the first television attack ad was released, Fischer told the media that he wouldn’t “stoop to Jim King’s level,” but he then released a response saying King is “playing chain saw politics,” and lying to the public.
In the second 30-second commercial, the King campaign says Fischer supports tolling the existing downtown bridges.
Earlier this week, LEO reported that among Louisville’s mayoral candidates responding to a questionnaire on the $4.1 billion Ohio River Bridges Project, only Fischer answered that he supports the unpopular method of tolling existing bridges as a means to pay for the behemoth public works project.
In response to the second TV ad, the Fischer campaign released the following statement.
“This ad shows once again that Jim King and the truth have never met. Jim King lives in a world where the truth is twisted, distorted, or, in the case of this ad, is utterly ignored at his convenience. Louisville deserves better than this. I will be honored to lead Louisville as the next mayor with a positive vision based on a lifetime of effective partnerships and results.”
No word if Fischer has responded to the mailer, but the fists keep flying.
