    Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is set to start running TV ads in a media buy worth $2 million as part of her 2016 presidential campaign on Tuesday, a campaign official said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) According to The Washington Post, the ads will air first in the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire. The 60-second videos are expected to focus on Clinton’s life and family.

    The campaign official said on Sunday, as cited by the newspaper, that the ad buy of $1 million in each of the two states was aimed at kicking off the campaign ahead of pro-Republican ads.

    The first ad is entitled Dorothy and concentrates on Clinton’s mother and her struggle for a better life. The second ad, called Family Strong, focuses on the Democratic candidate’s own family life and work, focusing on her work for the Children’s Defense Fund and her position as a senator representing New York during the 9/11 attacks.

    Campaign manager Robby Mook was quoted by the newspaper as saying that ads were going to show people who Clinton fought for and what motivated her commitment to children and families.

    Both ads were uploaded to Hillary Clinton’s YouTube channel on August 2 and have received thousands of views.
