Taft to hit road for Bush

The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — Gov. Bob Taft is scheduled to head to Texas next week to help Republican presidential nominee George W. Bush begin a three-day campaign swing that will cover 24 states, Mr. Bush's campaign said Monday.

        Mr. Taft, a constant companion of Mr. Bush's when the candidate has visited Ohio, will go to Austin on Sunday and join 28 other GOP governors. The tour still was being planned Monday and it was not known whether Ohio would be included.

        Meanwhile, Democrat Al Gore's campaign began airing an ad comparing Texas to Ohio on issues such as manufacturing jobs, health care and the minimum wage.

        The purchase of broadcast time for the ad brings to $6 million the amount of air time the Gore campaign has spent in Ohio.
