Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign began airing a new TV ad in critical early nominating states focused on her pledge to fight for equal pay for women.

In the ad, Clinton answers a question from a young supporter making it clear that she will do everything she can to make sure that every woman in America is paid fairly.

The 30-second ad is part of the campaign's ongoing buy in Iowa and New Hampshire and will run alongside previously released ads.

The Republican National Committee, citing previous stories in the Washington Free Beacon, said Clinton paid women less than men in her Senate office and State Department.

“If Hillary Clinton cared about equal pay then she wouldn't have paid women unequally in her Senate office and her State Department,” RNC spokeswoman Allison Moore said. “The truth is Clinton will say anything to get elected, which is why the majority of Americans find her to be dishonest and untrustworthy.”
