CONCORD – A leading pro-GOP outside group which has targeted Hillary Clinton since it was created two-and-a-half years ago is up with a new video that’s critical of the former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential front runner as she returns to New Hampshire to file to put her name on the first-in-the-nation primary.
The video, released Monday morning by opposition research shop America Rising, highlights what Republicans consider some of the low-lights from Clinton’s numerous campaign trips to the Granite State this year.
"As Secretary Clinton makes it official in New Hampshire today, America Rising is happy to point out the many bumps in the Granite State along the way. From private jet travel to contentious run-ins with the press, Clinton still faces serious questions about her trustworthiness, judgment, and character. Should Clinton win her Party's nomination, you can bet these issues will only grow more trouble for voters,” said America Rising PAC communications director Jeff Bechdel.
America Rising is blasting the email to their supporters, and is also spreading it through Facebook and Twitter. The group is not putting a digital buy behind the video.
Correct The Record, a pro-Democratic outside group that's defending Clinton from attacks from Republicans, responded to the video.
"This video can go in the bin with every other failed attempt by the right wing to mislead voters and cut into Hillary Clinton’s growing support. From advocating for early childhood education to taking steps to end gun violence and combat our nation’s growing drug epidemic, Granite Staters know the real Hillary Clinton who, unlike her Republican opponents, is out there fighting for them," Correct the Record spokesman Daniel Wessel told NH1 News.
