The National Rifle Association just released its strongest attack on Hillary Clinton to date. Just before the final presidential debate on Wednesday night, a television ad was released holding the Democratic nominee accountable for lying repeatedly.
In one portion of the commercial, Clinton declares, “I respect the Second Amendment.” It then plays audio, leaked from a fundraiser, in which Clinton is heard telling donors, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment,” an obvious indictment of the high court’s 2008 Heller verdict upholding the right to bear arms.
The NRA is putting $5 million toward airing the spot on national cable, as well as in markets that include Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. This brings NRA’s total spending in support of Donald Trump to almost $22 million.
