GOP ads target Arizona Democrat on immigration

The Republican Governors Association has unveiled a fourth ad targeting the immigration policies of David Garcia, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Arizona.

The ad announced Wednesday is the latest in a series of ominous ads flooding Arizona airwaves that paint Garcia as a radical who is liberal on illegal immigration and wants to "abolish ICE."
Garcia, a fourth-generation Arizona Hispanic, last week characterized the earlier ads as fear mongering intended to divide communities. He said the ads have taken his words out of context and reported things he has never said.
Incumbent Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has focused on border security in his campaign.
