Amid backlash surrounding the Republican National Committee and Fox News’ decision to only include the top ten presidential contenders in their August 6 debate, the RNC isn’t wasting time attacking the Republican Party’s number one foe: Hillary Clinton.
In a new ad titled “Wrong for America” released on Thursday, the RNC calls Clinton’s scandal-laden track record into question, points out her recent dip in the polls, and features clips from various news shows discussing her campaigns jarring April rollout.
The release of this new anti-Hillary ad comes just days before Clinton is scheduled to re-launch her presidential campaign at her first public event in New York City’s Roosevelt Island on Saturday.
“Hillary Clinton’s latest campaign reset won’t change a thing. She still refuses to answer the serious questions surrounding her finances, her family foundation, and her secret email server. Most people don’t think she’s trustworthy, and she’s still out-of-touch with everyday Americans,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement regarding the new ad.
“This is the same person who said she was ‘dead broke’ when her family in fact owned multiple homes. And this is the same person who complains about wealthy CEOs even as she and her husband raked in $30 million from speeches in just 18 months—hundreds of times more than the average working family. Everyday Americans do need a champion, but Hillary Clinton can’t be that champion.”
This is merely the latest ad in the Republican National Committee’s #StopHillary campaign. It will air in early primary states including Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
