Corker Asks Ford to Pull Ad, Apologize

Chattanooga (AP) - Bob Corker's campaign is asking his democratic opponent to pull a new television ad and apologize.

The ad by Harold Ford Junior accuses Corker of taking three pay raises for himself when he was mayor of Chattanooga, while giving police and firefighters nothing.

Republican Candidate Bob Corker has enlisted officials from his administration to defend his record.

A retired fire chief and a veteran police officer said in an interview Thursday that Ford's claims are false.

Each campaign has accused the other of lying in campaign ads during this tight race.
