New Hampshire residents better get comfortable. The newest Jeb Bush advertisement hitting the airwaves is a 2-minute spot taking aim at Donald Trump.

According to the campaign, the spot, which was first seen on WMUR in New Hampshire, is meant to draw a contrast between Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric with Bush’s record.

“I am sick and tired of politicians that find ways to disparage people to make themselves look strong. It is not strong to insult women,” Bush is shown saying during the advertisement, called “Turn off Trump.” “It is not a sign of strength, it is not a sign strength, when you say a POW is a loser because they got caught; John McCain is a hero. It is not a sign of strength to disparage the disabled in this country. It is a sign of deep insecurity and weakness.”

The advertisement continues, with Bush telling voters he hopes they want a candidate “who has a heart for the people.”

“You all have this incredible opportunity. You have the responsibility of reshaping this race. I have total confidence and belief that you will make the right choice,” he says in the advertisement. “Should I be our party’s nominee I will unite around common purpose and the conservative cause. I will defeat Hillary Clinton and we will restore America’s greatness.”

The advertisement will rotate into the campaign’s current New Hampshire ad buy.

The New Hampshire primary is Tuesday. Bush is fourth place in New Hampshire, according to recent polling averages.
