Before last night’s presidential debate, the National Rifle Association issued a broadcast ad that is one of its hardest hits on Hillary Clinton yet, accusing her of lying repeatedly, Politico reports. The NRA is spending $5 million on broadcasts in Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, as well as national cable, through Oct. 31. It brings the group’s television spending in support of Donald Trump up to around $22 million.

The ad begins by showing a clip of Clinton saying she did not send any classified emails on her private server, before flipping to a clip of ABC anchor Martha Raddatz from the last debate, citing the FBI’s finding that there were 110 classified email exchanges on her server. It then contrasts her statement, “I respect the Second Amendment,” with leaked audio from a fundraiser, in which she said, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment.” “Hillary will lie about anything to get elected,” the narrator says. “No more lies. Defeat Hillary.” The ad does not mention Republican candidate Donald Trump, who the NRA endorsed.
