Charleston PR executive Nancy Mace announced the launching of her first television ad in her bid to oust U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Mace's campaign shared no details about the ad -- where or for how long it will run or how much it will cost.

The 30-second spot, called "Change Washington," begins by panning pictures of a very young Mace saluting and Mace as a cadet at the Citadel, where she became the first woman to graduate from the military college.

In the ad, Mace says:

“I learned at a young age that things worth doing are never easy. I’m Nancy Mace and I’m running for the U.S. Senate to fix the mess created by career politicians. “As a businesswoman, I understand that economic opportunity and individual liberty are at the heart of America’s greatness. As a wife and mother, I believe we must fight for life and liberty to preserve the future for the next generation. “We cannot change Washington until we change who we send to Washington. I’m Nancy Mace and I approve this message.”

Mace is one of six announced Republicans running against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in June's primary. Official filing for the office begins March 16.
