Washington (CNN) – Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, the former GOP presidential hopeful running for re-election debuted a new TV ad Friday, but instead of targeting his opponents he focused directly on Washington attacking President Barack Obama.
"President Obama has made protecting our border incredibly difficult," the ad's narrator says. "But, Arizona has a senator with the courage and character to stand up to a president who is wrong: John McCain."
McCain's new ad highlights endorsements from Arizona sheriffs, including Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, who is a Republican candidate also up for re-election in November.
"A president versus a senator," says Babeu in the ad. "Doesn't seem like a fair fight. Unless that senator is John McCain."

GOP leaders unveiled the commercial Tuesday as part of its "GOP Code Red" campaign that is focused on the upcoming health care vote.

The new ad hits back at Republicans, flashing images of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who stepped down in 2005 under a cloud of legal problems.
