NC gov's race heats up with litigation over TV ad


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Pat McCrory's gubernatorial campaign and political committees behind a television commercial that McCrory wants off the air have filed competing legal actions in a North Carolina court.

The Democratic Governors Association and the group North Carolina Citizens for Progress have filed a complaint in Wake County court. The complaint filed Thursday asks a judge to rule that the ad's content is true and the groups have complied with the law.

The commercial that began running last week focuses on McCrory's involvement with a Charlotte-based business McCrory's campaign calls the ad false and says TV stations should stop running it.

A lawyer for McCrory's campaign late Thursday filed paperwork to start civil action against the Democratic governor's group and North Carolina Citizens for Progress. It has until mid-June to sue.

You tell em Chris...

Yes sir buddy, tell em like it is. No way would a democrat EVER lie. Having trouble catching fish are ya? Doing a lot of fishing in the gulf? Poor baby. Doing a little crying yourself are ya?

Another bloody

Another bloody election...........let the mudslinging and name-calling, as well as lawsuits begin. WHY can't political candidates just tell us what they will do if elected instead of attacking each other through the entire campaign? I think I'll start staying home on election day. None of the trolls are worthy of my time and vote.

And if you don't vote...and stay at home instead...

don't complain about the outcome of the election.

As long as freedom of speech

As long as freedom of speech prevails in this country, I will speak when, how, and where I please, whether or not I vote. As long as someone makes laws that affect me, if I voted or not, I have that right.
