MADISON, Wis. (AP) - House Speaker Paul Ryan’s first campaign ad hits on terrorism fears and is being released the same day he’s set to speak at the Republican National Convention.

Ryan talks directly to the camera in the ad released Tuesday, saying “Americans are right to be worried about ISIS plotting more attacks.” He refers to recent attacks in Orlando and San Bernardino that were carried out by people who were apparently self-radicalized in support of the terrorist group.

Ryan says in the ad that he’s passed legislation to “stop radical Islamic terrorists from entering the U.S.” and he’s also working with national security experts to prevent future attacks.

Ryan does not mention his longshot Republican primary challenger Paul Nehlen in the spot. Ryan outraised Nehlen 10-to-1 in the last quarter.
