Clinton ad targets seniors
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton launched a new television ad in Iowa and New Hampshire Monday designed to reach senior citizens.
In the 30-second spot, Clinton highlights her role as an advocate for the elderly by focusing on key issues of the demographic: Social Security and long term health insurance. Clinton asserts she is the candidate that has been with seniors “all along.”
The Republican National Committee immediately responded with a sharp critique of the New York Democrat’s ad.
“How can Senator Clinton claim to be there for you, when she won’t even give a straight answer on how to save Social Security? The one thing we know about Hillary Clinton and Social Security is that she was definitely there in the White House when Bill raised taxes on benefits and she was definitely there in the Senate when she refused to repeal it.”
