  • "Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jack Conway said Tuesday he has no regrets about his controversial TV ad that raises questions about the religious beliefs of his Republican rival, Rand Paul. The ad quickly caught the attention of national media and political pundits. Conway faced tough questioning on NBC’s Today Show Tuesday morning and on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews on Monday evening. Meanwhile, an anonymous woman referred to in the ad, which alleged that Paul tied her up when he was at Baylor University and forced her to worship a god called 'Aqua Buddha,' told The Washington Post Tuesday that Conway’s ad is 'over the top' but accurate."

Both polls may be exaggerated slightly, but they indicate that the race is tightening." [WFPL]
