Clinton Campaign Actually Releases Anti-Sanders Ad Day Before Joint Rally

bernie sanders hillary clintonThe Hillary Clinton campaign accidentally released a campaign ad slamming Bernie Sanders the day before the two former Democratic primary rivals are set to hold a joint rally.

Sanders is expected to officially endorse Clinton at a New Hampshire event Tuesday. Sanders had been slow to concede the race and then slow to endorse Clinton, but the two appear set to finally have their kumbaya moment on a national stage.

But the day before the rally, the Clinton YouTube page released “The Export-Import Bank,” an ad hitting Sanders’ attacks on the government agency. The ad was quickly deleted, but saved by The Washington Post.

Hillary Clinton, the ad notes, stands with Barack Obama and Joe Biden and other major Democrats in defense of the bank. But Sanders stance on the Ex-Im bank is the same as Democratic boogeymen like Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and the Koch Brothers.

The Clinton campaign has offered no official explanation for posting the ad long after the primary was over, but an anonymous source tells The Post that the video was uploaded but not published to YouTube in March. The campaign is reportedly looking into how it somehow managed to get published.
