Texas Sen. Ted Cruz vows to "kill the terrorists" in a new 30-second TV ad that debuted Saturday during the Big 10 Conference football championship, featuring the Iowa Hawkeyes.
The GOP presidential candidate says in the ad that the world has become more dangerous and the United States less safe under President Barack Obama and his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner.
"If I'm elected to serve as commander-in-chief we won’t cower in the face of evil," Cruz says. "America will lead. We’ll rebuild our military. We’ll kill the terrorists. And every Islamic militant will know, if you wage jihad against us you’re signing your death warrant."
The ad comes as one of Cruz's rivals, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, has been hitting Cruz on national security over his support of ending the metadata collection program, The New York Times notes.
The ad is scheduled to begin airing throughout Iowa, which holds the nation's first caucuses on February 1.
