St. Louis, MO – John Kerry's campaign has canceled new TV ads in Missouri, as well as in Arkansas, Arizona and Louisiana.

Campaign workers, who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition they not be named, say Missouri is the subject of much debate within the campaign. They say some advisers want more spots in the swing state, but others say Kerry just didn't doing well enough in the state to justify the cost.

The spots were scheduled to begin airing October 5th as part of a $5 million investment through election day.

Meanwhile, Vice President Dick Cheney will be in eastern Missouri Friday. The Bush-Cheney campaign says the vice president will speak at a rally at the Warren County Fairgrounds.
