The super PAC Kentuckians for Strong Leadership will broadcast an advertisement this week tying Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes to President Barack Obama's shift in position on health insurance plans under Obamacare.

The ad begins with Obama stating his promise that "if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep your plan." Then the ad says Obama knew all along that wasn't true, citing an NBC News report.

Obama said Monday that "what we said was you could keep it if it hasn't changed since the law was passed."

The Kentucky ad asks, "And how about Obama supporter Alison Grimes?"

"Her credibility's burned too," it says. "Fact-checkers are smoking out her exaggerations, inflations . . . Grimes and Obama: When liberals don't tell the truth, Kentucky gets burned."

The ad includes snippets of a house burning in the background. Grimes used the same image in a recent spot ripping her Republican opponent, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, over the government shutdown, Politico reports.
