A new ad out today in Minnesota, shared first exclusively with NBC News, highlights some controversial past statements made by the state's GOP nominee for Secretary of State, Kim Crockett.
"Crockett's views are so offensive, they're embarrassing her own party," a narrator in the ad says.
The ad is funded by iVote, a group working to elect Democrats to secretary of state positions across the country. The group plans to spend over $15 million on an ad campaign across multiple states this fall.
The Minnesota ad goes on to highlight comments Crockett made about Somali immigrants in 2019 that resulted in a suspension from the think tank where she worked at the time.
The ad also highlights how the state GOP party was forced to apologize for anti-Semitic tropes Crockett displayed in a video at the state party's convention earlier this year.
iVote has booked over $2 million worth of airtime in Minnesota from today through Election Day, according to AdImpact, an ad tracking firm.
They're also working to elect Democratic Secretaries of State in Michigan, Arizona, Georgia and Nevada.
