LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - New TV ads in Kentucky’s race for governor focus not on the candidates but on Democratic President Barack Obama.

An ad from Democratic nominee Jack Conway says he was the only Democratic attorney general in the country to sue the Obama administration over proposed emission standards for coal-fired power plants. In the ad, Conway says he will stand up to anybody to keep people working in coal mines.

An ad from the Republican Governor’s Association supporting GOP nominee Matt Bevin criticizes Conway for not joining other states in a lawsuit trying to overturn the federal Affordable Care Act. The ad says hospitals are struggling financially and insurance premiums have increased since the act was passed.

Polls show Obama is unpopular with a majority of Kentucky voters.
