Davis Camp Upset by Ad in Kansas Governor's Race

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Allies of Democrat Paul Davis are criticizing a new television ad in the Kansas governor's race highlighting Davis's presence at a strip club near Coffeyville during a 1998 meth raid. Davis's backers had a teleconference Friday to decry the Republican Governors Association ad. Davis's campaign labeled it a "disgusting" smear. The RGA and Republican Governor Sam Brownback's re-election campaign did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment. The RGA began running ads about the 1998 incident September 30. The new, 30-second spot features a flashing neon strip-club sign and a close up of a dancer's stiletto heels. At the time of the incident, Davis's law firm represented the strip club's owner. Davis was not arrested in the meth raid, but an officer reported finding him in a back room with a nearly naked woman.
