Bush for President, Inc.

60 sec. radio spot run in NY in the days before the March 7, 2000 primary.


Geri Barish: Hi. My name is Geri Barish, and I'm a breast cancer survivor.  For the last 20 years, I have worked hard to find a cure for breast cancer and to make sure those of us with this deadly disease are treated with dignity and respect.  Like many, I had thought of supporting John McCain in next week's presidential primary.  So I looked into his record. 

What I discovered was shocking.  John McCain opposes many projects dedicated to women's health issues.  

It's true.  McCain opposes funding for vital breast cancer programs right here in New York.  He opposes funding for the North Shore Long Island Jewish breast cancer program and wants to cut funding for NYU's program in women's cancer.  McCain is even against funding for breast cancer mapping.  That's right, John McCain even opposes funding for breast cancer mapping, essential to breast cancer research. 

John McCain calls these projects, just "garden-variety pork."  That's shocking.  

America deserves better.  Next Tuesday, John McCain won't have my vote. We deserve a candidate with a record on women's issues we can trust." 

Gov. Bush: Paid for by Bush for President.
