Gov. Pat McCrory’s latest TV ad, launched on Monday, features a prominent African-American businessman who has a background in the civil rights movement.
“I've known Pat McCrory for a long, long time,” Robert Brown of High Point says in the ad. “He has based his life on reaching out to other people. Our governor is honest, ethical, we can trust him. He understands that a good education is not just a talking point, it's everything. He has turned this economy around. We need Pat to continue all the work he has started. He is North Carolina's friend and he is my friend.”
Brown is CEO and founder of B&C International, a business management consulting firm. He was an associate of Martin Luther King Jr. In April, McCrory gave Brown the North Carolina Award for public service.
