WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The mud slinging in this race started months ago with a video made by Michael Lee’s committee. According to Lee, the knock-off political Jib Jab video puts humor into Thom Goolsby’s campaign video in which Goolsby claims he’s not a politician. But the tables seem to have turned.
Now Lee claims Goolsby supporters are marking up Republican sample ballots, putting a “D” for democrat by Lee’s name and handing them out at early voting sites. Lee is actually a Republican.
Goolsby wouldn’t address the sample ballot specifically, but he did tell us Lee’s news release comes as they near the end of the campaign trail.
