Sixth District Congressional candidate Andy Barr of Lexington criticized President Obama's coal policies during a two-minute speech at the Republican National Convention Tuesday afternoon.

The Lexington attorney said that President Obama doesn't care about the plight of coal miners who lost their jobs under his administration's policies.

Barr did not mention his opponent during his speech, Democratic incumbent Ben Chandler.

However, Chandler's campaign did note that the background image during Barr's speech was a picture of downtown Louisville, which is not the Sixth Congressional District.

Barr said he had no control over the background that was used during his speech.

Kentucky's two Republican U.S. senators, Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, are scheduled to speak at the convention in prime time Wednesday evening.
