Anti-Tillis ad shot at his victory party

A new Senate Majority PAC ad attacking North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R) was apparently shot inside his primary victory party earlier this week.

"I'm here watching Thom Tillis win his party's nomination to run for U.S. Senate," a woman whispers in the ad with Tillis speaking onstage behind her. "Thom Tillis says he's up there for you, but he'll cost North Carolina families big time."

The rather unusual ad says Tillis cut taxes for the wealthy while raising taxes and "raised taxes for 80 percent of North Carolinians."

Tillis avoided a runoff this week in the GOP primary, setting up a tight general election contest with Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.). 

The group has been hammering Tillis on the airwaves for weeks. Its latest buy is for $650,000.
