RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Patriot Majority USA has purchased a major TV ad blitz with an anti-Thom Tillis ad that associates the Republican U.S. Senate candidate with conservative donors David and Charles Koch.

The 30-second began airing Tuesday and will continue for two weeks, according to the Associated Press.
The group also ran an anti-Tillis ad earlier this year.
Tillis, the North Carolina House Speaker, is seeking to unseat Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan. 
Factcheck.org reports that Patriot Majority USA has Democratic/liberal leanings and was formed under another name in 2005 by Craig Varoga, a Democratic political strategist.
Varoga is reportedly chief strategist for Senate Majority PAC, the group tasked with electing/re-electing Democrats to the U.S. Senate.

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Democratic Party says it's started running a television ad criticizing Republican leaders at the General Assembly for passing laws that hurt women on issues from abortion and child care to Medicaid and the public schools.


The state party said Tuesday the 60-second commercial is running on cable TV in the Charlotte and Raleigh markets. A party spokesman declined to say how much money is being spent on the ad. An email sent to party supporters asked for more donations to keep the ad running.


The ad features Governor Beverly Perdue, state legislators and former Cabinet secretary and longtime party activist Betty McCain, who said "the GOP has declared war on women." The ad includes footage of Republican House leaders Thom Tillis and Paul Stam.
