Sen. John McCain has released a new ad for his Arizona Senate primary that emphasizes the need for securing the nation’s border with Mexico in order to boost security and stop illegal immigration.
He discusses the issue of illegal immigration with a border sheriff who tells the former Republican presidential nominee, "You're one of us."

Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County did the ad in uniform.
"Drug and human smuggling, home invasions, murder," McCain says as the spot opens. He is seen walking with Babeu, seemingly next to a border fence.
"We're outmanned," Babeu responds. "Of all the illegals in America, more than half come through Arizona." He then goes on to tell McCain that the senator's border security plan is "perfect" because it brings together various law enforcement.
"And complete the danged fence," McCain says.
"It'll work this time," Babeu says, adding: "Senator, you're one of us."
