Clinton launches two new ads in South Dakota

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Sen. Clinton has launched a new television and a radio ad in South Dakota."]
(CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign released two new South Dakota ads Tuesday.

The television ad “Responsibility” targets President Bush rather than her primary rival Sen. Barack Obama – the latest in a string of positive television spots from the New York senator.

“George Bush’s spending has sent the economy in a tailspin and put Social Security in jeopardy,” says the announcer in the 30-second spot. “Hillary Clinton will stop spending money America doesn’t have.”

“I will get us back to fiscal responsibility,” says Clinton, in a clip drawn from her stump speech.

The 60-second radio ad, “Matters,” takes a veiled swipe at Obama and his supporters. “Some people say the presidential primary in South Dakota doesn’t much matter. That your voice doesn’t really count,” says the announcer. But the bulk of the firepower is directed at Bush’s management of federal spending.

Announcer: In Washington, some people say the presidential primary in South Dakota doesn't much matter. That your voice doesn't really count.

But you know what?

Tuesday, we can show 'em.

We can pick a President.

After all, just because South Dakota comes last in the primaries doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be heard loud and clear.

And we can pick the candidate who'll stand up for us.

Hillary Clinton.

She’s tackling the national debt that George Bush is leaving us – nine trillion dollars – because she knows we've got to stop borrowing money from the Chinese to buy oil from the Saudis. Hillary knows we’ve got to stop spending money we don’t have so we can protect social security and get back to fiscal responsibility.

Hillary Clinton will turn this economy around. We’ve done it before. We can do it again.

Tuesday. Get out and vote. Let South Dakota be heard.

Stand up for Hillary Clinton. She'll always stand up for us.
