The Republican National Committee and the Gore-Lieberman campaign broke new ads on the eve of the Labor Day weekend, the traditional start of the fall presidential campaign. The RNC ad, from National Media, Alexandria, Va., and airing in 17 states, features the GOP's strongest attack yet on Vice President Gore. In the spot, a woman watching TV says, "There's Al Gore reinventing himself again. Who's he gonna be today? The Al Gore who raises campaign money at a Buddhist temple? Or the one who promises campaign reform?'' The ad ends with a screen that reads, www.gorewillsayanything.com. Meanwhile, the Gore-Lieberman campaign's Campaign Co. ad team launched a spot in which Mr. Gore speaks about his support for a patient's bill of rights.
