Pro-Trump Super PAC Future 45 invested $10 million in a latest ad campaign devoted to comparing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to former President Richard Nixon, according to the Washington Post.
The ad is set to air Wednesday morning, and focuses on the recent news that the FBI re-opened its investigation into Clinton’s private email server. The ad starts with Nixon’s statement, “people have got to know whether or not their president’s a crook.” The ad then asks the question, “How can we elect someone who is under FBI investigation?”
Future 45 benefits heavily from longtime Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson.
Until the most recent ad campaign, the group had only invested $2.8 million in national ad spending, according to The Washington Post. The $10 million invested in nationwide ad buys focus on key swing states, and mark the first ad in a series that hits the Clinton campaign on the Democratic nominee’s email practices during her tenure as secretary of state.
The Trump campaign announced that it planned to spend $25 million nationwide between now and Nov. 8. The Republican National Committee and other groups are spending large sums of cash in down ticket races as well.
