Illinois-based political action committee Restoration PAC is hitting Hilary Clinton hard with an ad series targeted to South Carolina voters diminishing her credibility as a presidential candidate, based on her “lies” about the Benghazi incident.
“Now we know the real truth about Hillary Clinton and Benghazi,” the script reads in part. “She lied and the emails prove it.”
Distinguishing the campaign from others is its timeline based approach to the matter. The first ad began its run Jan. 19, slated for 10 days in South Carolina, accompanied by notable digital and social media investment in the region. The PAC has allotted more than $390,000 for the 60-second spot, which examines Clinton’s involvement in an incident that left an ambassador and several other American citizens dead following inadequate security provisions.
Based in Oak Brook, Illinois, Restoration PAC is an independent, non-partisan political action committee that advocates for the election or defeat of specific candidates. Led by West Point graduate, military veteran, and former U.S. Senate candidate Doug Truax, Restoration PAC purchased additional airtime in Washington, D.C. as well as New Hampshire.
“America deserves leaders who tell them the truth and put our nation’s security ahead of politics,” Truax said. “Seventy-nine percent of Americans feel we will likely have another terrorist attack within the next few months. Hillary Clinton simply isn’t up to the job of keeping us safe or telling us the truth.”
