The National Rifle Association is launching a new multi-million dollar ad campaign against Hillary Clinton that features a survivor of the Benghazi attacks and urges voters to choose Donald Trump, USA Today reported Wednesday.
The NRA Political Victory Fund is spending $2 million to run the TV ad in the battleground states of Colorado, Ohio, Nevada, Florida, Virginia and Pennsylvania, according to the report. The 30-second spot comes after the group endorsed Trump.
Featured in the ad is Mark Geist, a Marine Corps veteran and security contractor who was present for the attacks. Against a backdrop of a cemetery, Geist asserts voters have a duty to stop Clinton.
“A lot of people say they’re not going to vote this November because their candidate didn’t win. Well, I know some people who won’t be voting this year either,” Geist says in the ad. “Hillary as president? No thanks. I served in Benghazi. My friends didn’t make it. They did their part. Do yours.”
News of the ad buy came a day after the House Benghazi Committee issued its final report, which included no new allegations against Clinton and found the Obama administration and military at fault for the Benghazi attacks. The sister of Ambassador Chris Stevens, who died in the attack, said Monday that she does not blame Clinton for what happened.
