Hillary Clinton's first ad to air on national cable will highlight House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's comments linking the House Benghazi Committee to Clinton's political fortunes.

In the ad, a narrator says "The Republicans finally admit it" before airing McCarthy's remark that "Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee. What are her numbers today?"

The ad also includes audio from an NBC News report about McCarthy's statement.

"The Republicans have spent millions attacking Hillary because she’s fighting for everything they oppose, from affordable health care to equal pay, she’ll never stop fighting for you and the Republicans know it," the narrator says in Clinton's ad.

The 30-second ad starts on Tuesday.

A visibly frustrated Clinton told NBC's Savannah Guthrie on Monday that Republicans have "admitted [the Benghazi panel] is a political, partisan committee for the sole purpose of going after me."
