APNewsBreak: Gillespie ditches ads in Va Sen race

The Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Virginia Republican Senate candidate Ed Gillespie is ditching television ads in the state with less than three weeks before Election Day.

Records posted on federal websites show Gillespie canceling or sharply reducing ad buys in multiple markets. Political operatives who track television advertising told the Associated Press Thursday that Gillespie does not have ads reserved in the final push to Nov. 4's elections.

Gillespie on Thursday declined to comment specifically on the cancellations. But he said his campaign will have enough resources to finish the race.

Polls show Gillespie trailing his first-term Democratic rival, Sen. Mark Warner.

Gillespie is the former chairman of the Republican National Committee and one of its best fund raisers.
