FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Three of Kentucky’s four Republican candidates for governor now have TV ads airing in the state.

Matt Bevin’s campaign revealed his first ad on Tuesday featuring his wife and nine children defining him as a conservative Christian businessman. The campaign said the ad will air in the Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati and Bowling Green broadcast TV markets and statewide on cable and satellite.

Bevin joins candidates James Comer and Hal Heiner on the airwaves. Heiner’s ads have aired since last summer and portray him as a Frankfort outsider intent on reforming government. Comer’s ads have focused on his tenure cleaning up the Department of Agriculture following a scandal.

Former state Supreme Court Justice Will T. Scott is also running but has not yet aired TV ads.

The primary is May 19.
