WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has debuted his first campaign ad, which is set to air in early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

The initial ad, scheduled to begin airing on Tuesday, focuses on key issues including national security and illegal immigration.

Trump has already aired radio ads in the first three primary states. The Iowa caucus — the first in early voting — is scheduled for Feb. 1.
