McCrory Gets Help From Sister, GOP Group Again

Two new television ads designed to help Republican Pat McCrory in his race for North Carolina governor are up and running.

In one commercial, McCrory's sister speaks in response to an ad
being run by Democratic nominee Beverly Perdue criticizing him for
his opposition to embryonic stem cell research. Perdue's ad
features a woman in a wheelchair speaking with an electronic voice
simulator.

McCrory's sister, Linda Sebastian, calls Perdue's ad
"shameful" and said the Charlotte mayor supports stem cell
research when a human embryo is not destroyed.

Also, the Republican Governors Association released another
commercial calling Perdue "status quo Bev" and blaming her for
raising taxes and for policies that have led to job losses.

Perdue's campaign has called a similar ad by the association
misleading.
