Elizabeth Dole has launched a new ad attacking her Democratic opponent for taking money from “Godless Americans.”

Kay Hagan who is running against Dole released said she would seek a cease-and-desist order against Dole’s ad. Hagan released a statement criticizing Dole for the attack.

“I am absolutely appalled at Elizabeth Dole’s vile tactics. This is politics of the worst kind, and I know it has ben rejected by North Carolinians at every level. It is so unbecoming of a woman like Elizabeth Dole. This is a fabricated, pathetic ad.”

CNN Republican consultant Alex Castellanos thinks the ad shows a weakness in Dole’s campaign. Castellanos said, “When you’re making ads that says there is no god it usually mean that your campaign doesn’t have much of a prayer.”
