Another 'Godless' ad in N.C. Senate race

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Sen. Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C., is blasting her Democratic opponent in a new ad for attending a fundraiser by an adviser for the atheist group Godless Americans.

"If Godless Americans threw a party in your honor, would you go?" the ad released Friday asked voters in the Tarheel State.

The Hill described the ad as a "step back" from an earlier ad that was rough enough to be publicly repudiated by several North Carolina newspapers. That commercial featured Hagan's face and a female voice, not Hagan's, stating, "There is no God."

Friday's ad focused on the fact that fact that Hagan was present at a fundraiser organized by a group that Dole's campaign claims wants to take God out of "our everyday lives."

Hagen's camp dismissed the ad and told The Hill.

"Sen. Dole knows Kay is a strong Christian, a former Sunday school teacher and a member of Greensboro's First Presbyterian Church, and she knows that her advertisements are lies," declared campaign spokeswoman Colleen Flanagan.
