• Group plans ads for GOP Sen. hopeful Sullivan


    BOSTON (AP) - A conservative group whose leader has lamented what he calls the "homosexuality is normal movement" is planning to produce radio and television ads for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Michael Sullivan.

    A spokesman for the Conservative Campaign Committee said it started production on two radio ads Monday and is shooting a TV ad Tuesday.

    The group said last week it hopes to raise more than $200,000 to support Sullivan.

    A Sullivan campaign official said he wasn't familiar with the leader of the group, Lloyd Marcus.

    The official said Sullivan welcomes the support of those who share Sullivan's "humility and good heart toward his fellow human beings."

    Sullivan has said he's a "traditionalist" on marriage, believing it should be between a man and a woman, but has also said he supports repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
