Beruff releases new television ad

U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Beruff has released a new tv ad with flushing toilets and jabs at President Barack Obama for his administration's push to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of the sex the identify with.

"They’re already forcing you to buy government healthcare," Beruff says in the ad. "And now, they’re dictating who uses your bathrooms at school. Obama may not have ISIS under control, but he’s got the toilets taken care of."

In May after several states promoted "bathroom bills," the Obama administration released guidelines to state that declares that "schools receiving federal funds may not discriminate based on a student's sex, including a student's transgender status."

Here's Beruff's new ad, though his campaign has not said where the ad is schedule to air or when.
