Mitch McConnell’s latest ad confuses Duke for Kentucky

SHARE Mitch McConnell’s latest ad confuses Duke for Kentucky

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has a new ad titled “Rebuild,” which promises voters that if elected, “I won’t let you down.” But it appears he already has after featuring the wrong basketball team in the ad.

Instead of showing the University of Kentucky’s basketball team, voters get to see Duke celebrating its 2010 NCAA title at the 1:09 mark of the video.

It didn’t take people long to ignite a firestorm on Twitter.

McConnell’s camp admitted the error when asked by Joe Sonka, a reporter at LEO Weekly.

The ad has since been pulled, but not before Sonka was able to post the original to YouTube.

First #Mcconnelling, now this.
