Dole's First Election Ad Starts Airing Today

Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole is launching her first campaign ad of the year with a 60-second spot that touts her work on illegal immigration.

The ad set to begin airing Wednesday includes clips from a number of sheriffs who praise the first-term senator for helping link them to federal immigration tools.

The advertisement comes one day after rival Kay Hagan met with sheriffs to discuss immigration.

Dole's campaign said it has spent about half a million dollars to air the spot statewide for about two weeks. She has banked some $3.2 million for her re-election bid.

Hagan ran a couple of ads before her primary victory at the beginning of May. Hagan reported having just $317,000 cash on hand in mid-April.
