WASHINGTON (CNN) – Democrat Hillary Clinton is launching a new ad in Ohio and Texas Saturday that features portions of her widely-praised final answer in CNN's debate last week - the campaign's latest effort to make the moment a defining one in the New York senator's White House bid.
The 60 second spot called "Resolved" shows much of Clinton's final moment at Thursday's debate during which she said, "You know the hits I've taken are nothing compared to what goes on every single day in the lives of people across our country."
"I resolved at a very young age that I'd been blessed and that I was called by my faith and by my upbringing to do what I could to give others the same opportunities and blessings that I took for granted," Clinton is also seen saying in the ad.
Bill Clinton also sent a fundraising e-mail to supporters Saturday seeking $1.3 million dollars to run the ad in all the March 4 primary states.
"Everyone in the upcoming primary states of Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island, and Vermont needs to see that moment," the former president writes in the e-mail.
The spot is one of four new ads launching in either Ohio or Texas - the two delegate rich states that Clinton's campaign has deemed crucial.
A 30 second spot hitting Texas airwaves called "Deliver" touts the New York senator's accomplishments with regards to healthcare and education, and the ad's narrator, in an implicit swipe at rival Barack Obama, says, "In Texas, when there's work to be done, talk doesn't cut it."
In Ohio, former Sen. John Glenn is the star of a new 30 second ad called "Proud," in which he touts Clinton's economic record: "As long as Annie and I have known her, Hillary's fought for working people," Glenn, who endorsed Clinton earlier this month, says.
Another 30 second ad hitting Ohio airwaves called "level" also pushes the New York senator's economic record, characterizing her as a fighter "for America's middle class."
