The pro-Jeb Bush Right to Rise Super PAC is out with a new attack ad. You can view it below:
When the attacks come here, the person behind this desk will have to protect your family. Will he be impulsive and reckless like Donald Trump? Will he have voted to dramatically weaken counter-terrorism surveillance like Ted Cruz? Will he have skipped crucial national security hearings and votes just to campaign like Marco Rubio? Twenty-seven generals and admirals support Jeb Bush because Jeb has the experience and knowledge to protect your family. Right to Rise USA is responsible for the content of this message.
According to The Washington Post, the new ad will air in four early primary states: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
The Washington Post explained each of Right to Rise’s attacks:
The attack on Trump comes as Republican rivals pounced on his comments late Monday. Bush used Twitter to call Trump “unhinged.”
Cruz, meanwhile, voted this year for the USA Freedom Act, legislation that limited the federal government’s ability to collect and keep Americans’ cell phone data. Rubio has been criticized for having a lax Senate voting record and for skipping hearings of the Senate foreign relations and intelligence committees.
Rubio has repeatedly defended his absence from the Senate by saying he is focused on winning the presidency in order to enact meaningful change and that he receives regular briefings on foreign affairs and intelligence matters even if he skips actual hearings.
