Nikki Haley’s presidential campaign has unveiled a digital ad titled “Grumpy Old Men Say What?” taking a jab at the ages of President Biden and former President Trump.
This video, part of the “Grumpy Old Men” series, serves as a critique of the two leading figures from opposing parties.
Running for over two minutes, the ad features clips of Biden appearing to mumble during speeches and Trump mistakenly identifying Haley as former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) while confusing Sioux City, Iowa, with Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
This marks the third installment of the campaign, launched earlier in the week, with The Hill being the first to obtain the ad.
The spokesperson for Haley’s national campaign, Olivia Perez-Cubas, emphasized the importance of having leaders who are at the peak of their capabilities amid significant challenges, such as economic struggles, border crises, and ongoing conflicts in Europe and the Middle East.
Perez-Cubas stressed that Nikki Haley represents a new generation of conservative leadership, embodying the strength, focus, and stamina needed to address the nation’s issues.
Haley aims to distinguish herself as a fresh face for the Republican Party, steering away from Trump while adopting a strategy to set herself apart from Biden as well. Recent polls suggest that this tactic might be effective, particularly in a general election scenario.
A Quinnipiac University poll released this week indicated that Haley would surpass Biden by a margin of 47 percent to 42 percent. The polling average from The Hill’s Decision Desk HQ also shows Haley leading Biden by just over one point.
