Politician Fights Back After 'Godless' Ad

A mini politics and religion war continues in North Carolina after Sen. Elizabeth Dole's "Godless" ad about her challenger.

Democratic opponent Kay Hagan sued Dole and released her own television ad after Dole's campaign aired an earlier ad.

Hagan says in the ad that the campaign is about fixing the economy, "not bearing false witness against fellow Christians."

"Elizabeth Dole's attacks on my Christian faith are offensive," she says in the ad. "She even faked my voice in her TV ad to make you think I don't believe in God. Well, I believe in God. I taught Sunday School. My faith guides my life, and Sen. Dole knows it."

Dole's earlier ad said Hagan took "Godless money."

"A leader of the Godless Americans PAC recently held a secret fundraiser for Kay Hagan," the the first 30-second ad says. "Godless Americans and Kay Hagan. She hid from cameras. Took godless money. What did Kay Hagan promise in return?"

The ad ends with an unknown woman's voice calling out, "There is no God."

Update: Here's the latest ad from Dole.
