(CNN) - John McCain’s campaign has released a new television ad in the Granite State that calls attention to the Arizona senator’s early support for the troop surge in Iraq, and highlights his consistent stands in the face of criticism.
"One man warned us we were failing in Iraq, and told us how we could turn things around,” says the announcer in the 30-second spot, titled "Not Easy."
"More troops and a different strategy. He took a lot of heat, but he stood by what he knew was right. Today that strategy is working."
McCain himself says, "I didn't go to Washington to win Mr. Congeniality. I went there to serve my country."
"One man does what's best for America,” says the announcer. “Not what's easy."
