The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has released an advertisement Tuesday that previews how down-ticket Republican candidates will face attacks over their support of Donald Trump.

The DSCC brands 13 potential GOP senate nominees as “reTRUMPlicans.” This includes incumbents like New Hampshire Sen. [crscore]Kelly Ayotte[/crscore] and people running for Senate for the first time like Rep. [crscore]David Jolly[/crscore].

The video includes candidates saying they will support the eventual Republican nominee, while showing clips of Trump swearing. (RELATED:Ad In Arizona Previews What Senators Will Face With Trump Nomination)


The DNC previously used the phrase “reTRUMPlican” in July when it released an ad connecting other GOP presidential hopefuls to Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric.
