Senator Bob Dole in Wilmington drawing support for his wife

Senator Elizabeth Dole and Kay Hagan are locked in one of the nation's closest Senate races, and the Dole campaign just released a controversial ad. Hagan is suing Dole over the ad, saying she is a Sunday School teacher and an elder in the Presbyterian church. With the election only days away, Senator Bob Dole was in Wilmington, drumming up support for his wife Friday. He stands by the ad she ran that is causing such a stir. “She goes to Boston; sneaks in the side door. They have footage of it and she claims they are attacking her faith. It has nothing to do with her faith. Atheists want to do away with Christmas; they want to take God out the Pledge of Allegiance and off the coin. I don’t think North Carolina people feel that way,” said Senator Bob Dole. Dole said suing his wife is the only defense Hagan has for her actions with the Godless Americans group. An Associated Press poll released Thursday shows Hagan slightly ahead of Elizabeth Dole, 48 to 43 percent.
