In the ad released by Loeffler’s campaign Monday, a man lounging on a couch describes the senator as “more conservative than Attila the Hun,” the ruthless ruler of the Hunnic Empire.
The ad then cuts to a clip of an actor seemingly portraying Attila who grunts out orders to another actor who speaks the orders out as he takes notes.
“Fight China, got it,” the note-taker says.
The other orders he repeats from “Attila” include, “attack big government” and “eliminate the liberal scribes.”
