Two new TV ads focusing on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s efforts over the years to help children will begin airing Thursday in North Carolina and seven other battleground states.
The ads, part of a six-week TV buy, trace Clinton’s longtime commitment to kids as a lawyer for the Children’s Defense Fund, as first lady, as a U.S. senator and as secretary of state.
In North Carolina, more than 200,000 children have been enrolled in the CHIP health insurance program she championed as first lady, her campaign said Wednesday.
A third Clinton TV ad, which casts Republican Donald Trump as a divisive figure and Clinton as a leader who wants to unite people, will also begin airing in North Carolina Thursday.
