|Description||President Bush will launch his first major campaign advertising effort in nearly three weeks on Friday, including his first foray onto North Carolina's airwaves to defend traditionally GOP turf. |
The campaign will roll out new ads and could expand a commercial running on national cable networks to local media markets in the 19 states where Bush will be on the air. That ad features GOP Sen. John McCain praising Bush's efforts in the war on terror. The rollout will cost $8 million over the next two weeks.
On Thursday, McCain said he would campaign for Bush but would not attack either Democratic candidate John Kerry or his running mate, John Edwards, fellow senators he called his friends. He also called Edwards, D-N.C., "a good man" and said Kerry, D-Mass., had made a good selection.
