Chelsea Manning Issues First Senate Ad [VIDEO]

Salon reports:

Chelsea Manning, a transgender woman and whistleblower convicted of leaking thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, has released the first campaign advertisement for her bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Maryland.

The ad opens with visuals of recent violent protests, clashes with police and the rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, Manning narrated, “We live in trying times. Times of fear, of suppression, hate.” She added, “We don’t need more or better leaders, we need someone willing to fight.”

YouTube has the video below listed as “age-restricted.” I’ve not seen that for a political ad before.
