McCain is up with a new ad in South Carolina.
(CNN) – Republican John McCain’s campaign announced Wednesday it was debuting a new 30-second ad in South Carolina.
"One man sacrificed for his country,” says the announcer in the new spot, "Never Surrender," over footage of McCain as a military officer and prisoner of war, and later images of the Arizona senator walking with President Reagan.
"One man opposed a flawed strategy in Iraq. One man had the courage to call for change. One man didn't play politics with the truth. One man stands up to the special interests. … One man does what's right, not what's easy. John McCain."
McCain himself speaks briefly in the ad, telling a crowd to "Stand up. We're Americans, we're Americans and we'll never surrender, they will."
McCain is among several Republican candidates vying for third place, behind Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, in most recent polls of South Carolina Republicans. The Palmetto State’s GOP primary will be held January 19.
