No suit filed on Democrats' ad questioning McCrory

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory won't sue outside political groups for a commercial last month questioning his links to a Charlotte company because the ad is no longer on TV.

A McCrory attorney filed paperwork last month to start a lawsuit against the Democratic Governors Association and North Carolina Citizens for Progress over the commercial McCrory called false.

No lawsuit was filed. McCrory campaign spokesman Brian Nick said recently there was no reason to file a lawsuit because the ad isn't running now, so the issues are moot.

Democrats say McCrory never planned to sue and filed the notice to get media attention.

The two groups have sued McCrory and his campaign. They want a judge to rule the commercial about the company Tree.com is true.
