A Republican political action committee on Monday is launching a new TV ad campaign in three battleground states featuring Sen. Barack Obama alongside the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, in the latest salvo from a GOP-aligned group to use clips of Obama's controversial former pastor.
The ad, from the National Republican Trust PAC, features now-famous video of Wright declaring "God damn America," and the "US of KKKA."
Sen. John McCain himself has declared Wright's inflammatory statements to be off-limits for his campaign. While he has repeatedly raised questions about Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers, a former member of the Weather Underground, he has refused to bring up Wright.
In April, when the North Carolina Republican Party announced an ad campaign using clips of Wright's sermons, McCain condemned the ad and asked that it be taken down.
