(CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign debuted a new television ad in South Carolina Thursday, a month before that state’s Democratic presidential primary.
The 60-second spot, titled “Stand By Us,” highlights the New York senator’s record on universal health care, including benefits for National Guard and Reserve members, and on Social Security.
“Hillary stood up for universal health care when almost no one else would, and kept standing until almost 6 million kids had coverage. She stood up for seniors by fighting this administration’s plan to head Social Security over to Wall Street and kept standing until Bush backed down,” says the announcer.
“She stood by our National Guard and Reserve and kept standing until every member had access to the health care they deserve. Hillary spent 35 years standing up for people. As President, she’ll stand up for you.”
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are locked in a tie for first place among Palmetto State Democrats in most recent polls.
