RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina Republicans and their allies are pushing back against critics this summer by spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on television ads and other media trying to promote their policies.

An outside group led by political friends of Gov. Pat McCrory announced it’s running a commercial in three TV markets over the next month. The ad features McCrory talking up his agenda at what looks like a meet-and-greet event in someone’s home.

The Renew North Carolina Foundation is chaired by longtime McCrory ally John Lassiter but is not required to release its donors.

State Senate leader Phil Berger began airing an ad Monday on cable TV in his district talking about the new voter identification law approved this year. Berger is considering a US Senate bid next year.
