Bush denies any involvement in running the ads -- which were paid for by a wealthy Texas supporter -- not his campaign.

"This allegation that I am somehow involved in this is just totally ridiculous. It is uncalled for."

A new bill approved by a state senate committee could give death row inmates a little more time to try to prove their innocence.
The bill would extend Virginia's toughest-in-the-nation 21 day rule to 45 days.
That would give killers sentenced to death an extra 24 days to find and introduce evidence they failed to produce at trial.
The original bill would have extended the 21 day period to three years-- but that version was killed today in the Senate Courts of Justice committee.
Now the bill goes to the full Senate.
