A new round of ads from Donald Trump’s presidential campaign will attempt to undercut the former secretary of state’s efforts to tap into the nation’s largest digital ad market.
The ad campaign is one of several that have emerged in recent weeks to capitalize on the president-elect’s success in reaching voters online.
In a move that could help him narrow Clinton’s digital advantage in key states, Trump and his campaign have spent more than $600,000 on digital advertising since the beginning of March.
But the campaign’s ads have not focused on Trump’s past remarks about women, his campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has said.
The Trump campaign has also failed to address the growing evidence that the Republican candidate sexually assaulted women, even after an anonymous former contestant accused him of doing so.
“It is really important that we are getting the truth out about Mr. Trump’s accusers,” Manafort said in a statement on Monday.
“We must not allow the lies to continue to go unchallenged.”
The ad buy comes as Clinton has tried to expand her digital advantage on the eve of a critical election.
Her campaign has spent nearly $7 million on digital ads, while Trump has spent about $2.4 million.
The ads underscore the stakes for Trump as he tries to secure a decisive win in battleground states on Nov. 8.
In Pennsylvania, where Clinton is leading, she is trailing by about 15 points.
In Florida, where Trump is ahead by about 4 points, the Republican is running out of time.
Clinton’s digital advertising has focused heavily on her campaign’s efforts in the Rust Belt, particularly Pennsylvania, which Trump won by almost 2 million votes.
In the state, Trump has said he is committed to expanding a border wall to Mexico and expanding a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally.
Trump also has touted his plan to ban Muslims from entering the U, a policy that has sparked protests across the U
