The super-PAC supporting a presidential run by Vice President Joe Biden released a new television ad ahead the first Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas.

The ad — “Never Quit” — is a part of a $250,000 national cable ad buy by Draft Biden, according to ABC News.

This ad uses audio from Biden’s speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. NPR has a full transcript of the speech here. It featured black-and-white photos of everyday Americans as well as Biden at the convention.

The super PAC pulled the ad, “Joe Biden: ‘My Redemption,’ ” on Friday after reports that the Vice President, while appreciative, thought the ad “treads on scared ground.”

The first ad used audio from the Yale commencement speech Biden gave in May, in which the Vice President reflected on the car crash that shaped his political and personal life.
