RALEIGH. N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson endorses Ted Budd for next month’s U.S. Senate Republican primary in a new commercial in which he also criticizes ex-Gov. Pat McCrory.

Robinson appears in an ad from the Club for Growth Action super PAC that began running Wednesday.

The committee plans to spend $1.3 million alone running this commercial on TV. It’s part of $14 million the group said it was prepared to spend in the race supporting Budd and opposing McCrory.

Robinson announced his endorsement at a rally earlier this month featuring former President Donald Trump, who also backs Budd.
