Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today launched its first TV ad of the presidential election cycle. The $2 million ad buy will run nationally on cable and local broadcast stations in key battleground states including Colorado, Ohio, Nevada, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maine.
“We cannot trust Hillary Clinton with our gun rights or our national security. The stakes in this election for law-abiding gun owners have never been higher, and the NRA will use all available resources to ensure that voters understand the consequences of a Hillary Clinton presidency on their fundamental right of self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, chairperson of the NRA-PVF. “By saying that the Supreme Court got it wrong in the historic Heller decision, Hillary made it clear that she does not believe Americans have the right to keep a gun in their home to protect themselves.”
The ad, which features retired United States Marine Corps veteran and CIA contracted security contractor Mark “Oz” Geist, who led the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012 that saved the lives of 25 people. Geist, is the co-author of 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi.
MARK GEIST: A lot of people say they’re not gonna vote this November because their candidate didn’t win.
Well, I know some people who won’t be voting this year either.
Hillary as President? No thanks.
I served in Benghazi My friends didn’t make it.
They did their part. Do yours.
