President Clinton interrupted his fun-in-the-sun vacation Saturday to walk through a potential home in Westchester County with his wife and daughter. The Clintons squeezed in a visit to a four-story Colonial north of New York City before heading to the Hamptons on Long Island for a weekend of fund-raising parties.

Rep. Rick Lazio (R-N.Y.), over the objections of some GOP leaders in New York, has confirmed he will seek the party's nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in which First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton could be the Democratic candidate.

A television ad boosting Hillary Rodham Clinton's expected New York Senate candidacy was unveiled Monday by state Democratic Party officials.
