The re-election campaign for President Donald Trump is launching an ad blitz in early primary states targeting former Vice President Joe Biden, Politico is reporting.
The ad will run in Iowa, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Nevada, two sources told Politico. The effort will cost more than $1 million.
The campaign had already announced an $8 million national television buy focusing on impeachment and the Ukraine controversy. About $1 million of that will now be directed to the four early voting states, according to Politico.
The ad is titled "Biden Corruption." It starts off with a narrator saying, "Joe Biden promised Ukraine $1 billion if they fired the prosecutor investigating his son's company."
And he adds: "But when President Trump asks Ukraine to investigate corruption, the Democrats want to impeach him and their media lapdogs fall in line."
Tim Murtaugh, a Trump 2020 spokesman, said: "Voters should know about the self-dealing, influence-peddling Bidens as the campaign season progresses."
Biden did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The ad is already airing nationally.
On Thursday, Biden campaign manager Greg Schultz sent a letter to Fox News demanding it not air the spot because it "spreads false, definitely debunked conspiracy theories."
And The Wall Street Journal said Biden is planning a $6 million ad campaign in the four states to counter attacks from Trump.
