Recently, The Richmond Observer published an article highlighting fact checks that were reported by WBT, Charlotte’s Mark Garrison.  The fact checks were completed on claims made by a television ad created by the Robert Pittenger Campaign.  The fact checks were subsequently refuted by the Pittenger Campaign Camp as inaccurate. As of Tuesday, the RO was made aware that the link to the fact check on WBT’s website has been removed. The Richmond Observer article was based on the WBT report and has therefore been removed from our site as well.
