More ads arriving in US Senate race in NC


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- More ads are going on the airwaves in North Carolina's US Senate race this year, including the expected first by a candidate in Republican Thom Tillis.

The conservative-leaning Americans for Prosperity announced it has begun running a commercial critical of the health care overhaul law and Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan. The ads began running Thursday in nearly every television market.

Group spokesman Donald Bryson said the ad buy is $1.4 million over three weeks, bringing spending related to AFP's three ads since October to $4.2 million.

Tillis' campaign also unveiled online an ad he told supporters will run on TV next week at a cost of nearly $300,000. The state House speaker is one of at least five Republicans seeking to challenge Hagan. He led in early GOP fundraising.
