The ad starts by illustrating the Georgia Republican is achieving the “American dream” by breaking glass ceilings and becoming “one of America’s leading businesswomen.”
Loeffler then directly swipes at Sanders, ending the ad saying that she approves this message because “I believe in America, that Bernie Sanders’s radical ideas are dangerous and that socialism risks everything that makes us great.”
The 30-second TV ad was first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Republicans have been quick to cast doubt on Sanders, who identifies as a democratic socialist, as he surges in polls and leads the primary field after wins in Nevada and New Hampshire.
He faced an onslaught of criticism Monday, even from members of his own party, after comments he made about Fidel Castro’s Cuba during a “60 Minutes” interview. He said “it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad” under the late Cuban leader’s rule.
The Sanders campaign defended his comments, claiming he echoed remarks former President Obama has made.
