Democratic candidate for Virginia governor Ralph Northam is not distancing himself from the controversial ad suggesting supporters of Republican candidate Ed Gillespie are seen as Confederates who attack minority children.

The new opposition ad titled “American Nightmare” was released Monday by Democratic group Latino Victory Fund (LVF) and is scheduled to run through Election Day. The opposition ad shows minority children seemingly being chased by a driver in a pickup truck, decked out with a Confederate flag, a “Gillespie for governor” bumper sticker and a “Don’t tread on me” license plate.

The driver makes his way toward the scared children who shout, “Run! Run! Run!” when they see the truck. The ad concludes with a scene of a Charlottesville-like rally, with a  narrator asking: “Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the ‘American Dream?’”

Northam’s campaign told Fox News Tuesday that the ad was “not shocking” based on Gillespie’s campaign.

    I watched a report on this on our local news. The reporters were asking people what they thought about the ad. In the three people they interviewed, not a single one had a problem with the ad. One stated “it only offends people because it is true”. Another said it didn’t bother her because she believed it. The last said it should not be taken off since it was “the truth”. Can you guess which candidate each of these folks is supporting? reminds me of how the Democrats in SC showing LCOL Allen West in a “Jib Jab” type ad in boxing trunk with “nappy hair” and gold teeth punching white women during his Congressional campaign. Funny how it was perfectly acceptable to run an ad like this against a black, Army Veteran because he is conservative yet would be bombarded with howls of “racism” had it been run against Charlie Rangel or John Lewis. Another case in point, not calling Jill Biden, PhD, “Doctor” is unacceptable, but not calling Ben Carson, MD, “Doctor” is the norm. It’s like he had to relinquish the title when he entered politics. (Yet all you hear in VA is “Dr. Ralph Northam. Is it because he is white, or liberal?)
