The Republican Governor's Association has produced this web ad discussing how bad the economy is in North Carolina and suggesting why voters may want to choose Pat McCrory over Walter Dalton. The businessman featured in the ad is Claude Pope, a former Wake County Republican Party chairman.
UPDATE: Democrats dismised the web ad, noting not only Pope's GOP ties, but also those of John Lassiter, a Republican who tried to suceed Pat McCrory as mayor of Charlotte.
They also blamed the failure of North Carolina to land Continential Tire on the failure of the Republican-lead state Senate to agree to a compensation package.
"Disingenuous web ads which fall apart after spending two minutes on Google are not oging to cut it, nor is blaming the world economic recession on Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton," aid Gerrick Brenner, executive director of Progress N.C. Action.
