WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) campaigned for republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney at an event at the North Carolina Battleship Tuesday afternoon.

Graham said North Carolina is an important state for Romney to carry in November. However, Romney's campaign isn't advertising in this market. Most of the television ads for the presidential race have been purchased by political action campaigns, instead of the candidates.

Graham said for Romney, that's because he has not raised as much money as President Barack Obama.

"We don't have as much money as they do," he said. "President Obama is closing in on a billion dollars raised. Mitt Romney is getting outspent in North Carolina. He's getting outspent all over the country. That's why the people who came out today are so important."

John McCain also campaigned across North Carolina today for Romney.
