The minute-long commercial, titled “American Nightmare,” was launched by Democratic group Latino Victory Fund (LVF). It reveals minority kids seemingly being chased by a driver in a pickup truck, decked out with a Accomplice flag, a “Gillespie for governor” bumper sticker and a “Do not tread on me” license plate.
The motive force makes his manner towards the scared kids — who shout, “Run! Run! Run!” after they see the truck.
The advert concludes with a narrator asking: “Is that this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie imply by the ‘American Dream?’”

“Ed Gillespie has made it very clear what he thinks of Latinos, and on Election Day, our neighborhood will make it clear how we really feel about him,” one other tweet learn.
The tv spot is the most recent in a political battle between Republican candidate Gillepsie – a former Nationwide Republican Committee chairman who’s acquired help from President Trump – and Democratic candidate Ralph Northam.
Trump has eagerly tweeted help for Gillespie by alleging that Northam “is combating for the violent MS-13 killer gangs & sanctuary cities” – a story Gillespie has pushed by way of native commercials.
Northam’s marketing campaign has tried to hyperlink Gillespie with the white supremacists who rallied in Charlottesville, Va., in August. Northam slammed the Republican candidate for not denouncing Trump “for not calling these white supremacists out for who they’re.”
Gillespie’s marketing campaign didn’t instantly reply to Fox Information’ request for remark.
