Clinton Resurrects 'Confessions of a Republican' Ad

Hillary Clinton released an ad Monday resurrecting a 1964 ad that tapped into the concern of Republicans over then-presidential nominee Barry Goldwater — even using the same narrator to voice his new worries about Donald Trump.

Titled "Confessions of a Republican II," actor Bill Bogert says, as he did 52 years ago, "I was a Republican who voted for Eisenhower and Nixon, my father was a Republican, his father was, the whole family was."

Bogert then continues: "But Donald Trump, he's a different kind of man. This man scares me."

"Trump says we need unpredictability when it comes to using nuclear weapons, what is that supposed to mean?" Bogert asks. "When a man says that he sounds a lot like a threat to humanity."

"I've thought about not voting," he concludes. "But you can't do that. That's saying you don't care who wins and I do care. I think the party is about to make a terrible mistake in Cleveland and I have to vote against that mistake on the eighth of November."

Clinton's campaign team has been promoting a series of material highlighting which Republicans do not support Trump and won't be at the convention, USA Today reports.

But the newest anti-Trump ad — released on the same day the GOP convention opens in Cleveland — seizes on "Confessions of a Republican," which came under renewed interest on social media last March.

"The ad appears to be history repeating itself in light of the 2016 cycle," Townhall's Matt Vespa noted
