Clinton ads respond

Published on .

The Clinton-Gore '96 campaign isn't even waiting until Bob Dole's acceptance speech Thursday night to begin responding to Mr. Dole's selection as the GOP nominee. The Clinton campaign Thursday announced plans for a "heavy" buy in primary states for a new TV spot featuring a picture of the Oval Office and questioning what would have happened to Medicare cuts, handgun laws and education if Mr. Dole had been president. The Clinton campaign said the spot, from Squier Knapp Ochs, Washington, was a response to "mistruths" at the Republican National Convention and felt it had to respond quickly before they were viewed as facts. The ads will run in major contested states.
