Hagan's ad, which Thursday, is a response to Dole's ad that highlights a Hagan fundraiser that was hosted at the Boston home of an adviser to the Godless Americans political action committee. Dole's commercial goes on to show that the Godless Americans support removing references of God from the public square, such as the words "In God We Trust" from money and the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance.
