A conservative group is launching an ad against former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, tying him to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and branding him "unelectable."
According to The Hill, ForAmerica will launch the one-minute Web ad Wednesday in early voting states, where the group says it has a "massive digital and social media network."
The five-figure ad will appear in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada as well as Florida, Maine, Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri.
"Almost all Republicans understand Hillary Clinton would make a terrible president," the text from the ad states, "All except one," according to Newsmax.
"The ad then cuts to Bush presenting an award to Clinton in 2013 and thanking her for her public service," Newsmax reports.
"Mr. Bush is unelectable, and there are several better options for conservatives and Republicans if they want to win in 2016. Period," The Hill quotes ForAmerica chairman Brent Bozell as stating.
"By heaping praise on Hillary Clinton, Mr. Bush has handed her the ammo to bury him . . . and she will," Bozell said, according to The Hill. "No other potential GOP nominee has that fatal disadvantage."
