WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A billboard rolled into Wilmington Wednesday calling on Governor Pat McCrory to keep his promise.

Dozens held signs and rallied around the truck parked in Downtown Wilmington Wednesday afternoon.   

The Progress North Carolina group says McCrory promised not to sign off on any bills that further restrict women's access to abortions, but they claim senate bill 353 does just that by preventing abortions from being covered by health insurance for city and county employees.

The group is taking the rolling billboard across the state calling McCrory's actions a broken campaign promise.

The group plans to continue the tour throughout the week.
