A television spot targeting Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) accuses the libertarian-leaning senator of supporting civil rights for accused terrorists over Americans’ safety.
Politico reports that a 30-second ad from the little-known conservative group American Exceptionalism Institute hits Paul over his refusal to support Gina Haspel, President Trump‘s nominee to lead the CIA.
Paul has refused to support Haspel over her role in the CIA’s waterboarding program, which many have called torture.
“Haspel did exactly what her country asked of her and what was necessary to keep us safe,” a narrator reads in the ad, while flashing images show a picture of top al Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubaydah. “Call Rand Paul, remind him he’s in Washington to represent us, not him.”
