Mitch McConnell, Noelle Hunter

This image made on Friday, Oct. 3, 2014 from a campaign advertisement video posted on the McConnell Senate Committee ’14 campaign website shows Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, with Noelle Hunter of Morehead, Ky. In the ad, Hunter tells how McConnell fought to help her get her daughter back from war-torn West Africa in a custody battle that spanned two years, two governments and two continents. Hunter said she was at first reluctant to ask McConnell for help with the custody case, and figured he would see her background, an earlier struggle with drug addiction, as a potential liability. Instead, he picked her story to highlight in his first feel-good ad of a tight, attack-heavy campaign against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. (AP Photo/McConnell Senate Committee ’14)
