CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- At least some West Virginia television stations are balking at an ad attacking the Republican candidate for governor.
A group funded by the Democratic Governors Association called Opportunity West Virginia is targeting GOP nominee Bill Maloney.
But Maloney's campaign says a half-dozen stations around the state are refusing to air the ad. Maloney says it's lying about his record as a business owner.
Those stations include WOAY in Oak Hill. Manager Al Marra says his station hasn't accepted the ad because of unresolved questions about its claims.
A DGA spokeswoman said Friday that it stands behind the Opportunity West Virginia ad as accurate.
Marra said the group appears ready to spend between $300,000 and $400,000 in the Bluefield-Beckley-Oak Hill market alone.
Maloney is challenging Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, a Democrat.
