The super PAC supporting Donald Trump's White House run will begin airing a new ad Monday accusing Hillary Clinton of profiting from decades of political connections.
"A foundation was created and money started to roll," a narrator says in the ad, part of a $3 million buy by pro-Trump group Rebuilding America Now. "The Clintons are now worth an excess of $100 million dollars," the ad continues.
The super PAC will initially run the ad nationally on cable television before adding specific targets in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.
The ad capitalizes on comments Clinton made while promoting her memoir in mid-2014. The former secretary of state said that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, left the White House nearly broke at the end of his presidency before ultimately cashing in on lucrative post-presidency trades of book-writing and speech-giving.
This ad is not the super PAC's first attack on Clinton. The group released an ad earlier this summer, juxtaposing Hillary Clinton's defense of her private email server with her husband's infamous denial of infidelity with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
So far in the 2016 campaign, Trump and his allies have trailed Clinton's ad firepower by a dramatic margin.
As of the end of last week, Rebuilding America Now had reserved less than $1 million in ad time through November. The Trump campaign itself has aired no ads in the general election.
Clinton and her allies, on the other hand, have already spent more than $60 million on ads aired to date and reserved nearly $100 million in additional airtime through the fall.
