Liberal Ad Portrays Gillespie Voters as Racists in Virginia

A new liberal television ad Monday portrayed Virginia voters who support Republican Ed Gillespie as racists who want to kill minority children.

The ad by the Latino Victory Fund shows a pickup truck with a Confederate flag and a Gillespie bumper sticker pursuing two Hispanic children, a black child, and a Muslim girl wearing a headscarf.

The children run down a blind alley where they encounter a chain-linked fence. The truck barrels down on them, when they wake up. It was all a dream.

Then an announcer asks, "Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the American dream?"

The ad then shows a clip of a torch-lit march of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, the scene of a clash among neo-Nazis, counterprotestoers, and Antifa anarchists in August.

Gillespie's campaign manager, Chris Leavitt, told the Washington Free Beacon that the ad is an "attack on the people of Virginia."

The ad is the latest in a virulent television campaign eight days before an election many see as a referendum on President Donald Trump in swing-state Virginia, the only southern state that voted for Hillary Clinton.

Gillespie has portrayed his Democratic opponent, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, as soft on crime and bad for the economy. Gillespie's ads have denounced Northam for his support of sanctuary cities and have blamed the Democrat for the rise in assaults by MS-13, a deadly gang comprised mostly of Hispanic immigrants.

Northam is trying to make the Nov. 7 election a referendum on Trump.
