RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Republican Senate candidate Ed Gillespie is temporarily ditching television ads in the state with less than three weeks before Election Day.

Records posted on federal websites show Gillespie canceling or sharply reducing ad buys in multiple markets this week.

A Gillespie campaign spokesman said Thursday that the campaign will launch a new $300,000 ad buy statewide starting on Saturday.

Polls show Gillespie trailing his first-term Democratic rival, Sen. Mark Warner, who is blanketing the state with ads.

Gillespie is the former chairman of the Republican National Committee and one of its best fund raisers.
