The National Rifle Association launched a new TV ad buy this week supporting Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race.
The $5 million buy is the NRA’s fourth and largest ad buy of the presidential election cycle, and underscores what’s at stake for the Second Amendment if Hillary Clinton is elected president. The spot, called “Nightstand,” airs on national cable as well as regional broadcast in the key battleground states of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
“The stakes in this election could not be higher,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF chairman. “The American people cannot afford to elect a president who doesn’t support their Second Amendment freedoms. Hillary Clinton is an elitist, out-of-touch hypocrite who believes in one set of rules for her, and a different set of rules for the rest of us. This ad underscores that fact. Law-abiding Americans should not have a president who would leave them defenseless.”
