Stop Hillary PAC Spends $1 Million in Swing States to Remind Voters About Benghazi

Posted: Oct 22, 2016 9:45 AM

The Stop Hillary PAC wants to make sure that swing state voters don't forget that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to lead during the 2012 terror raid in Benghazi, Libya. So, they are re-airing an ad from last year that highlights her inaction.

“Now we know why Hillary deleted her emails. She didn’t want Americans to know how much she fears being held accountable for Benghazi,” said Ted Harvey, chairman of the Stop Hillary PAC. “Stop Hillary PAC isn’t backing down. We are doubling down. We are prepared to spend up to $1 million in the next few weeks to re-air that ad and stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president.”

The ad, entitled, "I'd Like to Ask," gives a voice to the four men killed in Benghazi. One-by-one, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith and U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens ask Clinton how she could ignore the calls of help coming from Benghazi, why she lied that the attack was the spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video, and why she tried to silence the testimony of a Benghazi whistleblower.

The PAC is especially hoping the ad will make an impression in Arizona, where Clinton is currently up be five points, according to recent polling.

“We cannot take Arizona for granted, as the most recent poll shows Hillary up by five points in the state,” Harvey said. “Arizona is more of a swing state than most people realize, and it is critical in the quest to reach 270 electoral votes.”
