Gov. Pat McCrory is using his staunch defense of North Carolina's controversial "bathroom bill" as a major selling point for his reelection bid in November.

"You know, when we were raising average teacher pay, creating new jobs and cutting taxes, other folks were actually pushing to make our schools allow boys to use the girl's locker rooms and showers," McCrory says in a new TV ad called "The Truth About Privacy" which was released Wednesday.

"Are we really talking about this? Does the desire to be politically correct outweigh our children's privacy and safety? Not on my watch. Our kids and teachers are my priority. This is North Carolina. Let's do what's right."

The so-called HB2 law, which bans transgender people from using bathrooms in accordance with their gender identities, has cost the state tens of millions of dollars in revenue.

Rockers with such as Bruce Springsteen have cancelled concerts to protest the Tar Heel State's "discriminatory" law. And the NBA yanked the All-Star Game from Charlotte explaining that HB2 creates a "climate" that does not follow the "values for which we stand."

McCrory's opponent, Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, has said he wants to get rid of HB2 and says McCrory "wants to make this campaign about where you go to the bathroom."

The Justice Department is suing North Carolina over HB2, calling it a violation of the federal Civil Rights Act.

The state's governor and legislature "created state-sponsored discrimination against transgender individuals who simply seek to engage in the most private of functions," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in May.
