LITTLE ROCK — Club for Growth Action, a political arm of the conservative advocacy group Club for Growth, said Tuesday it is spending about $1 million to run an anti-Donald Trump television ad in Arkansas and Oklahoma.


The 30-second spot begins airing Wednesday on broadcast, cable, and satellite television and digital platforms in the two states, both of which will hold primary elections next Tuesday.


In the ad, an announcer asks, "Which presidential candidate supports higher taxes, national health care and the Wall Street bailout? It’s Donald Trump."


The ad argues that Trump is "really just playing us for chumps" and that his record is "very liberal." It features a photo of Trump at a social function with Bill and Hillary Clinton and a video clip, played twice, of Trump saying, "In many cases, I probably identify more as a Democrat."


"Club for Growth Action will continue to expose the truth about Donald Trump’s long liberal record of support for higher taxes, national health care and government bailouts," Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh said in a statement.


"The ad that will air in Oklahoma and Arkansas worked to bring Trump’s polling averages down in Iowa," he said. "During the time a CFG Action ad ran in South Carolina, his numbers also declined by more than five points. As CFG Action has shown throughout this campaign, there is no greater indictment of how terrible Donald Trump would be as president than his own words."


The Trump campaign did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment.


Trump made campaign appearances in Hot Springs in July and in Little Rock earlier this month. The billionaire developer and reality TV star is scheduled to return to Arkansas for a noon rally at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport in Bentonville on Saturday.
