Kasich backers release new ad in NH

As part of a $6.5 million advertising campaign in New Hampshire to bolster Ohio Gov. John Kasich's presidential bid, New Day for America released its eighth TV ad on Thursday.

The latest spot portrays Kasich as a tested leader with a plan to destroy the Islamic State.

"On the job training for president does not work," the narrator starts out as photos of President Obama and GOP front runners Donald Trump and Ben Carson flash up on the screen. "Benghazi, beheadings, Paris. Our lives depend on a commander in chief with experience, who understands the world."

New Day for America spokeswoman Connie Wehrkamp said in a written statement: "These times are far too dangerous to make that mistake again with candidates who have absolutely no experience like Donald Trump and Ben Carson."

A composite of polls tracked by Real Clear Politics shows Kasich garners between 3- and 4-percentage points among GOP voters nationwide, trailing Trump, Carson and others.
