Clinton's campaign has released a new ad at a time when several polls have found the Democratic race tightening.
WASHINGTON (CNN)–Hillary Clinton's campaign is airing a 60-second ad in Iowa and New Hampshire titled "New Beginning."
The spot comes on the heels of several recent polls that have found Illinois Sen. Barack Obama leads decisively among Democratic primary voters looking for change.
Amid shots of the New York senator addressing enthusiastic crowds on the trail, Clinton repeats some familiar elements of her stump speech, including calls for universal health care and an end to No Child Left Behind requirements and the war in Iraq. She also emphasizes her experience, an area where surveys show she holds an edge over Obama.
"It takes strength and experience to bring about change," says Clinton. "I have a very clear record of 35 years fighting for children and families, fighting for working people, fighting for our future."
