“12 years ago right here…we needed some hope,” Childs says in the ad, which cuts to images of Obama talking about her campaign slogan. “I said I’m fired up and ready to go, and that was it.” 


“We need something different to beat Trump,” Childs continues. “Tom Steyer can bring it. Watch out –– my guy Tom is fired up, and Trump’s got to go.” 

The ad will run in all four early nominating states, according to the Steyer campaign. 

A Fox News poll released earlier this month showed Steyer surging to second place in the state, with 15 percent support. But the billionaire philanthropist is running at fourth place in South Carolina, according to a RealClearPolitics average of recent polls in the state. 

Steyer has spent about $14 million on local broadcast ads in South Carolina since launching his campaign in July, The New York Times reported citing ad tracking firm Advertising Analytics. Steyer’s ads account for 70 percent of total spent on political ads in the state by all candidates, Democrats and Republicans, the Times reports.
