Girl in Clinton Ad Supports Obama
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
It's 3 a.m., and do you know who's in your ad? Apparently, the Clinton campaign didn't in its now-famous TV spot showing a young girl sleeping while a phone rings in the dead of night at the White House. The message: Hillary Clinton will keep her safe.
The ad used stock footage of a child, who, as it happens, is turning 18 and voting for Barack Obama. Yesterday, Casey Knowles told ABC the ad was, quote, "fear-mongering."
It's MORNING EDITION.
