New Clay Higgins Web Ad Gets Swift Reaction On Social Media
Congressman Clay Higgins has used his "in your face" style to his benefit winning a seat in the House last year, but does a new online ad go too far. Social media users have lashed out on Facebook and Twitter after a gun-toting Higgins implores people to vote republican in upcoming elections. The video has gotten some traction and has been viewed more than 500 thousand times.
What seemed to touch a nerve was the coincidental timing of the ad which posted just before news of the Manchester shooting made shock waves around the world. There was obviously no way Higgins or his team could have known about the attack, but is that enough? Users asked about Higgins' priorities in Washington but were mixed in their reactions to the clip.
