Seven weeks from election day, Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes has released a new advertisement in which she goes skeet-shooting, distances herself from President Barack Obama and takes aim at the Republican she is trying to unseat, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“I’m not Barack Obama,” Lundergan Grimes says in the ad. “I disagree with him on guns, coal and the EPA."

"And, Mitch, that's not how you hold a gun."

On Outnumbered today, Sandra Smith characterized the ad as very effective and authentic.

"I liked it very much," Smith said, noting Lundergan Grimes' swipe at McConnell brandishing a rifle at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year.

Arthur Aidala disagreed and wanted more in a political ad than slick production value.

"I would prefer to hear her talking about something a little more substantiative, even if it's on gun control," he said. "It's where all politics is going. It's all visual."

Kennedy noted that the Kentucky Senate race - which McConnell leads by a little more than 5%, according to recent polls - could be swung by libertarian candidate David Patterson, and Lundergan Grimes is likely attempting to appeal to those who prefer a limited government.

"[Patterson] will have enough votes certainly to sway this close election," she added. "Mitch McConnell is in trouble. He was endorsed by Rand Paul, but was still lucky to make it to the general election."
