Sen. John McCain's Republican primary challenger has released a new ad using McCain's own voice admitting to lying in the past.

Former congressman J.D. Hayworth's campaign released the commercial Thursday.

It uses McCain's voice from the recording of his 2002 book, in which McCain recalls publicly supporting South Carolina's right to fly the Confederate flag, even though he personally opposed it. McCain says on the recording: " ... it could come down to lying or losing. I chose lying."

The ad suggests McCain is again lying about his record on illegal immigration. It says McCain supported Social Security benefits for illegal immigrants and opposed a border fence.

McCain spokesman Brian Rogers says the nonpartisan FactCheck.org has already called those accusations false.

Hayworth spokesman Mark Sanders says the campaign is spending $365,000 on the ad.
