Arizona candidate: Hillary Clinton attack ad 'laughable'
Republican gubernatorial candidate Christine Jones responded to the latest attack ad coming from a South Dakota-based veterans group.
This $50,000 piece was paid for by the non-profit Veterans for a Strong America, and casts Jones as a member of the Hillary Clinton fan club.
"This is so outrageous and taken so far out of context as to be almost laughable; it's comedic at this point," Jones said. "The people who know me and who listen to my message understand Hillary Clinton and I are hardly comparable."
She said Clinton has nothing to do with the Arizona governor's race, and it has more to do with economy, education and immigration.
"It is absolutely the height of compliment, however, when your opponent starts wasting their money putting attack ads on the air," she said.
Jones said that having placed four pictures of deceased Americans in their ad, some of them military members
The ad contained four pictures of deceased Americans, some of them military members. Jones said that was a huge mistake and people are raging because of it.
"Boy have we heard back from people. They do not like that. They said that using a military tragedy for your personal political gain has come too far," Jones said.
She feels that not being part of the establishment resonates with people, and has increased voter confidence in her.
