Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. has released a new political ad featuring the quiet voice of a throat cancer survivor.

"I worked at a nuclear facility that has been vital for our national security. Like many, I was exposed to radiation. I got cancer," the man whispers in the ad. "But Mitch McConnell fought for us, creating cancer screening programs and providing compensation for sick workers. Mitch McConnell is a caring and powerful voice for Kentucky's families, and having a strong voice matters."
