McCain Personally Denounces Anti-Obama Ad

Senator responds Wednesday to a North Carolina GOP ad that uses footage of the Rev. Wright to criticize two Tar Heel Democrats for endorsing Obama. Watch it above.

Tells TIME’s Michael Scherer: “We asked them not to run it… There is no place for that kind of campaigning.”

Also sends letter to state GOP chairwoman deploring “offensive” commercial.

Update: North Carolina GOP says it will go ahead with the ad.

Republican chairwoman Linda Daves tells News and Observer: “This is not about the RNC… It is about North Carolina, our values and two Democrat candidates who are out of sync with the values of North Carolina.”
