New Bush ad stresses fight against terror

Sept. 20, 2004 at 10:48 AM   |   Comments

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 20 (UPI) -- The war on terror is the focus of the Bush campaign latest television ad, released Monday, emphasizing the president's plan to make America safer.

The ad also wraps congressional GOP leaders into the discussion of the Bush-led efforts to increase homeland security measures, reform U.S. intelligence services and create a national counterterrorism center.

Campaign officials said the ad was part of an ongoing effort to emphasize a contrast between Bush and his Democratic opponent, U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass., on the issue that ranks atop many national surveys as the one voters are most concerned about. The inclusion of congressional GOP leaders in this spot is part of the campaign's attempt at preventing what some senior officials have a called, "a lonely victory" for Bush in November; one in which he wins re-election but without adding to the GOP's ranks in either half of Congress.

The ad, "War on Terror Agenda," is scheduled to go the air Monday on national cable and in select local markets.
