Jeb Bush releases new TV ad in New Hampshire on national security

in 2017/Top Headlines by

The Jeb Bush presidential campaign has made TV and cable news buys in New Hampshire and the Boston market with a new 60-second ad called “Honor.”

The ad features Medal of Honor recipients – retired Marine Corps Col. Jay Vargas, retired Army Master Sgt. Leroy Petry, retired Air Force Col. Leo Thorsness, and retired Marine Corps Maj. Gen. James Livingston – discussing why they think Bush is the leader the country needs to take on the national security threats facing the United States.

The ads runs from now until Dec. 22, and includes a mixture of both 60-second and a shortened 30-second version of the ad.

The campaign says the cable buys will exclusively air on Fox News.
