NEW AD: Cunningham is a “Proud Progressive”

The National Republican Senatorial Committee today launched its first ad of the North Carolina Senate race targeting James Calvin Cunningham III and his “progressive priorities.”

Watch the NRSC’s new ad here.

“When James Calvin Cunningham III isn’t hiding out in Chuck Schumer’s ‘windowless basement,’ he’s telling his donors and the liberal base about how proud he is to be a progressive like Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “Cunningham would be a rubber stamp for the extreme liberal agenda in Washington, and just like they have in the past, North Carolina voters will reject his ‘misleading‘ and ‘mostly false’ campaign talking points this November.”
