Group backed by Adelson and Ricketts relaunches with new hard-hitting ad against Clinton
Future 45 – the group backed by major GOP donors – has relaunched with a new ad comparing Hillary Clinton and her issues with transparency and private email to President Richard Nixon. CNN has the full story below:
The super PAC funded by two major Republican donors, the Adelson and Ricketts families, is beginning its first advertising push since it relaunched with a searing new spot comparing Hillary Clinton to a Republican president: Richard Nixon.
Word emerged this week that those two families, among the biggest backers of the Republican Party but not yet Donald Trump contributors, would finance their own super PAC to help not just Trump but also GOP Senate candidates. The group, Future 45, is aiming to raise $25 million, but it is unknown how much of their money will be spent outside of anti-Clinton spots in Senate battleground states — an intentional move to boost down-ballot Republicans.
“A secretive, paranoid politician who destroyed 30,000 pieces of evidence,” says the narrator, referring to Clinton’s lost emails as secretary of state. Shadowed figures appear on the screen as Clinton’s scandals are rattled off. Nixon and Clinton’s images appear side-by-side.
“At least Nixon was right about one thing,” says the narrator as the spot concludes.
“People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook,” Nixon then says.
