Republican congressional candidate Ilario Pantano is going after his GOP opponent for the 7th District nomination, state Sen. David Rouzer of Johnston County, with an ad about Rouzer's work as a Washington lobbyist.
Pantano says the ad, called "Unacceptable," will air in the Wilmington area for a week.
The ad says Rouzer pushed "a liberal plan to provide amnesty for illegal aliens," and strikes the same chords as an anti-Rouzer ad his Republican primary opponent Nena Reeves ran two years ago in the state Senate district primary.
Dome's Claims Dept. take on the ad of two years ago: "It is based in truth, but it also exaggerates."
