MORE's presidential campaign rolled out a new television ad in Iowa on Tuesday, touting his ties to the passage of the Affordable Care Act during his time as vice president in the Obama administration. 

The minutelong ad, titled "Personal," highlights Biden's experiences with health care, in addition to defending former President Obama's signature health care law.

The ad also appears to hit Biden's 2020 Democratic rivals for proposing ideas to replace ObamaCare. 

"ObamaCare is personal to me," Biden narrates in the ad. "When I see the president try to tear down, and others propose to replace it and start over that's personal to me too. We've got to build on what we did because every American deserves affordable health care."

The new ad illustrates the Biden campaign's latest effort to tie the former vice president to the Obama administration. The campaign said in a statement that it will release smaller digital ads in the Hawkeye State next week aimed at highlighting Biden's plan to build upon the Affordable Care Act. 

The latest ad buy is part of Biden's six-figure paid media campaign, targeting crucial media markets in Iowa ahead of the state's caucuses in February.
