Fresh off the heels of the soft-launch at Iowa’s annual Harkin Steak Fry for her much-expected presidential run, Hillary is already taking serious political fire for her involvement in the Benghazi debacle.
A newly-formed SuperPAC, dubbed the Stop Hillary PAC, is launching a 30-second ad campaign aimed at taking the former Secretary of State to task for her role in the botched mismanagement of the U.S. consulate in Libya which resulted in the death of three American civil servants and one U.S. ambassador.
The PAC’s ad will run strategically in the early primary states of New Hampshire, South Carolina and Iowa, an obvious move to weaken Hillary’s bonafides ahead of the beginning of the horse race for the Democrat presidential nomination.
Honorary Chairman of the PAC, Colorado state Sen. Ted Harvey explained, “My number one goal is to make sure that Hillary Clinton is not the next president of the United States.”
The timing of the ad’s release was intended to correspond with the first public hearing on Benghazi in the U.S. House of Representative, report the Washington Post.
The ad pours gasoline on the fire already burning over recent reports that State Department officials under Hillary’s watch were told to scrub official documents of any political liability before handing them over to House authorities.
Should the Benghazi hearings offer similar hard-hitting revelations, the details could put serious doubt into the viability of a Hillary candidacy.
