RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Pat McCrory’s gubernatorial campaign is demanding television stations stop running a commercial bankrolled by the Democratic Governors Association, arguing it made false claims about his activities linked to a Charlotte-based business.

An attorney for McCrory sent a memo to stations running the ad that launched Friday.

The ad seeks to tie McCrory’s position on the board of directors of Tree.com Inc. with financial settlements or penalties by company subsidiaries over lending or mortgage practices.

McCrory was in his last year as Charlotte mayor when he joined the board. The memo says McCrory was never a lobbyist for Tree.com when the ad suggested he was while mayor.

A lawyer for the group that produced the ad said it’s complying with North Carolina law and the ad’s content is fully documented.
