Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Chris McDaniel released a new digital ad today to run statewide.

Entitled “That’s Not Good,” the brief ad uses Donald Trump’s words about another candidate who refuses to debate to highlight the fact that Cindy Hyde-Smith refuses to debate any of the candidates in the field in the special jungle general election to replace Thad Cochran in the U.S. Senate.

The fifteen-second spot includes headlines from Mississippi and national newspapers reporting the fact that Cindy Hyde-Smith won’t debate.

Cindy Hyde-Smith refuses to debate Chris McDaniel. That’s not good.
