Several North Carolina television stations decided to pull an ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee that attacked U.S. Senate candidate Cal Cunningham, the Charlotte Observer reports. The Cunningham campaign said the attack was “not true.”

The original version of the ad suggested that Cunningham “benefited directly from the Paycheck Protection Program,” according to the Charlotte Observer. The Cunningham campaign along with his former company, WasteZero, said it is untrue. The NRSC was forced to revise the ad before putting it back on air.

“Senator Tillis and his allies are lying about Cal, and the ad is so false that TV stations refuse to air it. They have nothing good to say about Senator Tillis’ record so they’ve resorted to these desperate attacks,” the Cunningham campaign manager told the paper.
