The DNC is scrapping plans to air a TV ad touting Bob Dole's support for healthcare reform after the former Majority Leader objected.

Dole had signed on to a healthcare reform plan with Tom Daschle sponsored through the Bipartisan Policy Center and has urged Republicans to keep working for a bipartisan healthcare compromise.

But he said the planned DNC ad suggested he supported specific Democratic legislation, which he does not.

“The ad makes it appear Senator Dole is supporting the Democratic version of health-care reform," Dole spokesman Michael Marshall told the New York Times. "That is patently false. He is not supporting any bill out there. He has been pushing for bipartisanship and for leaders on both sides to come together to pass sound reform."

Democrats have been highlighting prominent Republicans who support reform, including former Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R).

Here's the commercial in question.
