(WDRB) — Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is airing her first attack ad in Kentucky’s hot race for U.S. Senate. In the new ad, released on Tuesday, Grimes accuses Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell of voting to increase out-of-pocket Medicare costs. But the McConnell campaign says Grimes is pushing the panic button and trying to scare seniors. Grimes’ ad features Don Disney, who says he’s a retired coal miner. In the ad, Disney is seated with Grimes in a rural setting and addresses a question to McConnell.

Lerner said Israel has already mobilized 20,000 reservists for a possible ground operation into Gaza, but for the time being Israel remained focused on maximizing its air campaign. A ground invasion could lead to heavy civilian casualties on the Palestinian side while putting Israeli ground forces in danger. Israeli security officials say they have prepared different scenarios inside Gaza, ranging from a quick pinpoint operation to a full re-occupation of the seaside strip. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005. “The ground option needs to be the last option and only if it is absolutely necessary. It is a carefully designed plan of action,” Lerner said. In the first indication that cease-fire efforts were underway, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said Wednesday that he had held “extensive contacts with all active and concerned parties” to end the fighting.
