Former CIA operative Valerie Plame has released an ad to make the case to New Mexico voters why she should be elected to Congress.

"I come from Ukrainian Jewish immigrants," she said in the video, as she drives backward on an empty road in rural New Mexico to represent what she says is a nation going in the wrong direction. "My dad was in the Air Force, my brother almost died in Vietnam. My service was cut short when my own government betrayed me.

"I'm running for Congress because we're going backwards on national security, healthcare, and women's rights," she said in the video before doing a 180-degree turn in the car and insisting, "We need to turn our country around."

Plame, a Democrat, is a candidate for the seat held by fellow Democrat Ben Ray Luján, who is running for a Senate seat, according to The Hill.

Plame's identity was illegally leaked by George W. Bush administration officials, which she called an act of "revenge" against her husband.

The official who blew her cover, former Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff Scooter Libby, was pardoned last year by President Donald Trump.
