Former Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer’s super PAC is going after GOP Rep. Darrell Issa in a new attack ad, alleging that the California congressman is going to take away people’s health care.

PAC For A Change’s 30-second spot, released Wednesday, depicts Issa as a bobblehead, while hip hop music plays in the background, connecting the lawmaker to President Donald Trump and blasting his support of repealing Obamacare.

“We’re using humor, but we’re dealing with a deadly serious issue,” Boxer, whose PAC managed to raise more than $1.3 million since she vacated her seat, told Politico.

The former senator said her PAC is aimed at fighting Trump’s agenda and unseating vulnerable Republicans.

“I promise you this: when I left the Senate, I said you would see Barbara Boxer unleashed and uncensored,” she said on the organization’s website. “And that’s just what you’re going to get.”

Issa, who is currently serving his ninth term in Congress, faced his closest race yet in the last election cycle, narrowly edging out Democratic candidate Doug Applegate after three weeks of tabulating. Pollsters have attributed a shift in the demographics of his Southern California district as the reason behind its transition into a battleground seat.
