TV ads criticizing Donald Trump for mocking a physically disabled reporter began airing in North Carolina this week, and will continue until the November election.

It’s part of a $9 million TV ad reservation in this state by Priorities U.S.A. Action, a super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton. It will air in the Triangle, Greensboro and Charlotte markets.

The group says this brings its total reserved ad space to $145 million, with $105 million going to TV, $35 million on digital and $5.3 million on radio nationally.

The ad, titled “Grace”, features the parents of a disabled child.

“We are constantly assessing where to best allocate our resources in order to aggressively take the fight to Donald Trump and expose him for the divisive and dangerous con-man that he is,” the super PAC said in a statement released Friday.

Besides North Carolina, the ad will appear in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire and Iowa.
