President Donald Trump released a new campaign ad on Friday titled “The Red Wave – November 8.” The two-and-one-half-minute video was produced by MAGA Inc. and urges American voters to get out on Election Day to support America First Republican candidates.
The ad was first posted to Twitter Friday afternoon by Save America Director of Communications Taylor Budowich.

Trump narrates the video, beginning with a statement that the midterm elections are a referendum on the last two years of federal policies enacted by Joe Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). He said the “radical left Democrat Congress is destroying our country.”
Trump then said to Americans they are set to elect an “incredible slate of True America First Republicans up and down the ballot.”
The ad contains a series of clips of Trump-endorsed Republican candidates. Included are Kari Lake and Blake Masters of Arizona, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastiano of Pennsylvania, Sarah Palin and Kelly Tshibaka of Alaska, J.D. Vance of Ohio, Herschel Walker of Georgia, Tudor Dixon of Michigan, Greg Abbott of Texas, Harriet Hageman of Wyoming, and Joe Lombardo and Adam Laxalt of Nevada.
Masters, who is taking on incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), said in the ad: “The future of the country is on the line, so vote like it, because we need to win, we’re going to win. God bless you. We’re gonna make this country great again.”
Laxalt said that voters have “one shot” to “save Nevada and save America. Let’s go do it.”
Trump is holding rallies in the final days before Election Day on Tuesday. He has stops scheduled in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Florida on Sunday, and Ohio on Monday.
On Friday, Rasmussen Reports published its final Generic Congressional Ballot poll before the election. The survey indicates the GOP holds a five percentage point lead over Democrats in the race to retake control of Congress. Among likely American voters, 48% said they would vote for a generic Republican candidate and 43% would choose a generic Democrat candidate. Additionally, 6% said they remained uncertain and 3% would choose a generic third-party candidate.
RealClearPolitics (RCP) currently projects the GOP will win a majority in the Senate over Democrats, 54 seats to 46. Republicans are also expected to retake control of the House with around 244 seats to around 191 for Democrats.
RCP also projects that 31 states will have Republican governors to 19 with Democratic governors after Election Day.
