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.”
