Kasich super PAC rolls out anti-Trump ad

New Day For America, the Super PAC aligned with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, unveiled a new ad Monday targeting GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

The 47-second ad is a highlight reel of some of the businessman's most controversial statements from the campaign - such as asking if Iowa voters are stupid and whether Arizona Sen. John McCain is actually a war hero. But the commercial also goes beyond the campaign, including footage from interviews where Trump referred to African-Americans as "the blacks" and joked that he would date his oldest daughter, Ivanka, if she weren't his daughter. Watch the ad here:

The ad is currently playing in New Hampshire, but the Super PAC is also making an effort to get it out digitally in Ohio. New Day has said it will spend $2.5 million to target Trump on behalf of an increasingly jittery Republican establishment worried that the businessman will win the Republican nomination. In response, Trump implied that a third party run is possible, in spite of the fact he signed a Republican party pledge not to.

Trump is maintaining steady leads both nationally and statewide, while Kasich remains out of the top tier.

New Day is also planning to fly a plane around the Columbus Convention Center this evening ahead of a Trump rally there. The group says it will remind voters "that Trump can't be trusted."
