Clinton/Gore '96




FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 23, 1996

STATEMENT OF JOE LOCKHART
NATIONAL PRESS SECRETARY

In a desperate attempt to try to find a message for his campaign, Bob Dole continues his negative attacks against the President. But whatís missing from his speeches and advertisements is any discussion of his own record of 35 years in Congress:

Today, September 23, 1996, the Clinton/Gore '96 campaign announces a new ad entitled "Wrong In The Past". "Wrong in the Past" is designed to fill the 35 year issue and legislative gap left by the Dole campaign.

The text of the ad follows:

Wrong In The Past

Letís go back in time. The Ď60s. Bob Doleís in Congress.

Votes against creating Medicare. Against creating student loans.

(1970s)

Against the Department of Education. Against a higher minimum wage

(1980s)

Still there. Against creating a drug czar. Against the Brady Bill to fight crime.

(1990s)

Against Family and Medical Leave. Against vaccines for children.

Against Medicare - again. Dole-Gingrich tried to cut 270 billion.

Bob Dole. Wrong in the past. Wrong for our future.
