House GOP primary candidate Kay Daly, who is challenging Rep. Renee Ellmers, fires a gun in a new ad after saying that she's "hunting RINOs."
The new ad derides Ellmers, who has served in Congress since 2010, as a "feminist" and a "RINO" (an acronym for "Republican in Name Only") who has voted "to let homosexuals pretend they’re married."
A narrator also accuses Ellmers of voting "to raise the debt ceiling twice to pay for abortions in D.C. and to fund ‘Planned Butcherhood.'"
Daly is a former N.C. GOP spokeswoman and congressional aide.
Ellmers' district is heavily conservative; in 2014, she defeated former American Idol star Clay Aiken with 58.9 percent of the vote.
The primary is next March.
