Campaign Ad Flap

The Republican National Committee has decided not to air an ad attacking the credibility of Vice President Al Gore, the Democratic presidential nominee. The ad was apparently controversial within the party headquarters, and today the GOP's own nominee, Texas Governor George W. Bush said he approved of the decision to reject it. The episode was sure to renew debate over the relationship between the committee and the campaign, which, under campaign laws, are required to act independently. NPR's Peter Overby reports.
