Is this too crass? I'm thinking of a 30 sec spot...

commercial for all 2018 Dem candidates...

15 sec of hate-mongering neo-Nazis in Charlottesville
mixed with Trump's "Fine people on both sides..." comments...mixed with the GOP candidates backing Trump...

10 sec of the Dem Candidate paying respectful attention to all types of Americans.

Finishing with a split screen - swastika on the left, American flag on the other with the super-imposed caption - Do you agree with Trump both sides have fine people? VOTE DEMOCRATIC for a Free America.

I think most GOPers, and even right leaning Independents, will simply say that Trump is right -- Both sides were fighting, the counter-protesters should have stayed home.

I honestly think most GOPers are OK with Neo-Nazis and racists, but believe they should not be too visible. You don't have to protest with Nazi and confederate flags, just vote for racists like Trump and most GOPers.

Our main advantage is probably drawing a portion of the 40% or so of likely Democrats who don't vote.
