Hillary Clinton’s campaign will begin running television and radio ads Wednesday, the campaign announced.
Two 30-second television ads will run in the Raleigh/Durham and Charlotte markets, the campaign said. Two 60-second radio ads will run in those two markets as well as in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem, Greenville/New Bern, and Wilmington markets.
The campaign said it was a “six figure” ad buy, but would not provide specifics.
The advertisements arrive a day before Clinton campaigns in the state. She plans several campaign stops Thursday, including rallies at Hillside High School in Durham and Broughton High School in Raleigh.
Morgan Freeman narrates the TV ad “Stand,” which includes pictures of Treyvon Martin, Dontre Hamilton and Sandra Bland.
“She speaks for a city poisoned by indifference,” Freeman says over a photo of a Flint, Mich., water tower. “And stands with the President against those who would undo his achievements. Just like she’s always stood with us.”
The ad “Predatory” is about predatory prescription drug pricing.
Morgan Freeman also narrates one of the radio ads, and Kerry Washington narrates the other.
Clinton is running against Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.
