Blank Check Ad

Linda speaks with Bill Paxon (R-NY), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, which has produced and paid for new ads that urge voters to prevent Democrats from controlling both the White House and Congress.

Paxon says that this interpretation of the ad is wrong, and that the GOP still has confidence that Dole can win the election.
