Pro-Stephen Colbert Super PAC: 'A Vote For Herman Cain Is A Vote For America'


The Colbert Super PAC -- recently renamed The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC -- has released a new ad appealing to voters in South Carolina.

Jon Stewart, who took over the Colbert Super PAC after the comedian decided to explore a presidential run, emailed Colbert supporters Monday night touting the ad, which was "released in advance of the upcoming underfunded GOP Primary." Though the ad -- titled "Not Abel" -- was released by a pro-Colbert group, it encourages South Carolina residents to vote for another Republican in the upcoming primary -- Herman Cain.

"A vote for Herman Cain is a vote for America," the ad says. "He's such a Washington outsider, he's not even running for president."

The ad comes as Colbert pushes forth with his campaign despite the fact that he technically can't run in the South Carolina primary. HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reports:
