RALEIGH (AP) ó Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kay Hagan forcefully tells voters in a new television ad she believes in God and cites the Bible’s 9th Commandment to decry her rival’s tactics.
Hagan took to the airwaves Thursday with the ad, which directly declares that her Christian faith guides her life.
It’s a response to an ad from incumbent GOP Sen. Elizabeth Dole that questions why Hagan went to a fundraiser at the home of a man who serves as an adviser to the Godless Americans Political Action Committee.
Dole’s ad ends by showing a picture of Hagan while another woman declares in the background, “There is no God!”
Referring to the Ten Commandments, Hagan says in her response her campaign is about creating jobs and fixing the economy, “not bearing false witness against fellow Christians.”
