Las Vegas Teen Featured in Anti-Trump Digital Ad Campaign

AS VEGAS (AP) — A Democratic super PAC is launching ads against Donald Trump that feature a 17-year-old Las Vegas cancer survivor.

Dante Latchman talks in the 30-second spot about fighting a rare form of cancer in his spine that’s made it difficult for him to walk.

The ad flashes to a clip of Trump mimicking New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has chronic condition that affects the movement of his arms. Latchman tells the camera he wants a president who inspires him, not makes fun of him.

The Priorities USA super PAC is spending $500,000 to run the ads on Facebook, Instagram, Pandora and before other online videos in battleground states including Nevada.

It’s part of the group’s multimillion-dollar “Stop Trump/Stop Hate” campaign aimed at millennial voters.
