This is rather unusual; Rep. Mike Coffman has unveiled an anti-Donald Trump ad. Yes, you have read correctly, a Republican is blasting the nominee of his party in a political ad.
Additionally, the spot will be translated in Spanish. It is an understatement to say that this presidential election is bizarre.
Coffman, a four-term Republican Congressman from Colorado, who is fighting for his political life against former state Senate President Morgan Carroll, will start airing the 30-second ad on Friday.
In the ad, the conservative politician looked straight at the camera and told his voters that he plans to go to Washington and stand up to Mr. Trump if he is the winner of the presidential election in the fall. The congressman stated:
“People ask me, ‘What do you think about Trump?’ Honestly, I don’t care for him much. I’m a Marine. My duty is always to you. So if Donald Trump is the president, I’ll stand up to him. Plain and simple. And if Hillary (Clinton) wins, I’ll hold her accountable every step of the way.”
He explained that he might not even vote for Trump in November. The spot comes just days after Coffman slammed Trump for bashing Khizr and Ghazala Kahn – the parents of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq.
Some experts say that the ad might not be enough to save his seat.
