Clinton, Obama To Start TV Ads In Nevada

Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign is matching the Barack Obama camp by starting television ads in Nevada this week _ and questioning a new poll indicating Clinton's grip on the Democratic presidential nomination in this state has slipped.

Clinton communications director Howard Wolfson says the 60-second ``New Beginning'' ad will run statewide starting Tuesday, stressing Clinton's accomplishments and experience. That's the same day for the start of Obama's shorter ``Take It Back'' ad, describing him as a Washington outsider who wants ethics reform and opposes powerful lobbying interests.

Wolfson also described a new Las Vegas Review-Journal poll showing a drop in Clinton's lead in Nevada over Obama, to a 34-to-26 percent edge, as --quote-- ``an outlier that's not consistent with what we've seen'' in other polls conducted at about the same time and showing Clinton with a stronger margin.

The candidates' television ads, the first in Nevada for the current field of presidential hopefuls, are expected to run until the state's Jan. 19 caucuses.
