Raleigh, N.C. — Asked about the coarseness of political discourse during Saturday's political debate, Republican candidate for governor Pat McCrory called a recent online-video by the North Carolina Republican Party "stupid."
In the video, which had been posted on the party's web page, video of Democratic candidate Walter Dalton has been spliced together and over-dubbed to make it sound like Dalton was saying things that, well, nobody in this state would say if they actually wanted to get elected.
McCrory had this to say about the video: "The Republican Party came out with a YouTube video yesterday which I found ridiculous, and stupid, and irresponsible, and not factual about Mr. Dalton. And I've asked them to take it down."
When we checked for the video today, it had been marked "private" on YouTube, and therefore no longer available to the general public.
