The spot opens with McCain giving a speech.
"Keep that faith," he says. "Keep your courage. Stick together. Stay strong. Do not yield. Stand up. We're Americans. And we'll never surrender."
Then an announcer begins speaking.
"What must a president believe about us? About America?" the announcer asks, as images of McCain grace the screen. "That she is worth protecting …that liberty is priceless … our people, honorable … our future, prosperous, remarkable and free. And, what must we believe about that president? What does he think? Where has he been? Has he walked the walk?"
The minute-long spot then offers video of a young McCain laying in a hospital bed, after having been captured and tortured in Vietnam. He offers his rank and official number – 624787. Watch the spot below.
