Anti-Hillary Clinton groups are already going up with television ads centered on Benghazi, the same week that House Republicans’ select committee is holding its first hearing on the attacks.

The Stop Hillary PAC, one of the various groups that has cropped up to fight the Hillary 2016 momentum, will start airing an ad in key primary states on Thursday, MSNBC reported. The PAC is spending $100,000 for the advertising campaign in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

“We still need to hear answers,” the ad’s text reads. “But Hillary Clinton prefers silence.”

It then asks viewers to sign an online “citizen’s subpoena” demanding that Clinton testify before the House select committee.

“Demand Hillary Clinton answer for the American lives lost in Benghazi,” the narrator concludes.

Stop Hillary PAC is chaired by Ted Harvey, a Colorado GOP state senator and former Reagan White House aide. Other officials include Alex Shively, a former aide to Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), and Garrett Marquis, who previously worked on John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
