A new 30-second commercial, appearing on Rep. Duncan Hunter's YouTube channel and shared via Twitter, depicts his Democratic opponent as a security risk bankrolled by the Muslim Brotherhood.
"Ammar Campa-Najjar is working to infiltrate Congress," the narrator says. "He's used three different names to hide his family's ties to terrorism."
The ad was posted about the same time that the Los Angeles Times quoted a spokesman for Hunter as denying that Hunter — in well-publicized remarks in Ramona — labeled Campa-Najjar a Muslim.
"He never made the claim that his opponent is Muslim," Hunter aide Mike Harrison was quoted as saying. "That's for his opponent to answer."
