RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Richard Burr’s re-election campaign is refusing to provide one of North Carolina’s largest newspapers with details of his upcoming campaign events.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday (https://bit.ly/2e5HZvj ) that Burr spokesman Jesse Hunt says the decision was made after the campaign raised objections to the newspaper’s coverage of Burr’s re-election contest with Democrat Deborah Ross.

The News & Observer says Burr’s campaign voiced concerns about an article last week involving a 2010 campaign fundraiser that conflicted with a Senate committee hearing on a costly military aircraft.

In an email to The Associated Press, Hunt says the Burr campaign has not identified other media organizations with which it will not share information about upcoming campaign events, though notice of Burr appearances has been sparse this month.
