Well, it turns out that mailer was just the first of a two barrel blast from NC Families First this week with the second one firing on Friday. Here it is...

The points made on this second flyer were exactly the same as the ones made in the first, so there's no need to debunk them again here.
There was something interesting noticed with this second one.
On Tuesday we told you about the previous flyers mailed in support of Campbell by the Democratic Party of North Carolina. All of these flyers were Authorized by Campbell and all had some level of focus on the I77 toll issue. One of those mentioned Bradford specifically.

In the bottom left hand corner of both flyers lists the "fact check" references for the statements made.
Here they are up close. The top is from NC Families First and the bottom is from the NC Democrats.
Notice anything? Take a good close look.
Four out of six references on each flyer are exactly the same.
Out of all the stories on the I77 issue done over multiple years by various print, TV, and online media outlets these two completely independent operations pick the same four out of six media reports to reference in hit pieces targeting the same person.
One paid for by the Democratic Party and one paid for by a dark money operation with 2014 campaign ties to the "eviscerate" crowd.
