Dole hits 'Godless' message again in new ad

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole is back on the airwaves with a new ad that again decries her rival's ties to an atheist group.

Dole says in the ad airing Friday that the faith of Democratic state Sen. Kay Hagan is not the question. The incumbent says the facts are that Godless Americans held a fundraiser in her honor in Boston.

An adviser for Godless Americans held a fundraiser at his home. The event was not billed as a Godless Americans event, and other hosts included an ambassador and U.S. Sen. John Kerry.

Hagan has already filed suit against Dole, saying an initial ad on the subject was defamatory.

Dole ends her new ad by asking voters, "If Godless Americans threw a party in your honor, would you go?"
