Republican congressional candidate Woody White is airing a new TV ad throughout the 7th Congressional District beginning Wednesday. It’s the campaign’s first districtwide ad in the three-way GOP primary in May.

In the ad, White, a Wilmington attorney, continues his criticism of top Republicans in the U.S. House – House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia – for siding with Democrats and President Barack Obama in support of a recent increase in the debt ceiling. Cantor is supporting White’s main primary opponent, former state Sen. David Rouzer of Johnston County. Fayetteville Republican Chris Andrade is also in the race.

The 30-second ad features a photograph of Cantor, Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Obama. In it, White calls for “new Republican leadership – the kind that won’t cave in to Obama.” White adds: “I’ll repeal Obamacare, oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants and never stop fighting Obama’s attacks on North Carolina.”

The spot will air on broadcast channels in the Wilmington media market and on cable in all markets. The district includes all or parts of 12 counties in southeastern North Carolina, stretching from Brunswick County to Johnston County.
