The online ad is part of the super-PAC's larger $1.5 million ad buy used to issue blanket attacks on Republican presidential candidates ahead of the general election.

Previous attacks questioned why the GOP field continues to say they'll support the GOP nominee for president, even if it is Trump, but this is the first to exclusively target a Republican rival.
