Perdue, McCrory Raised $7M-Plus In Third Quarter

Just like the polls, the fundraising for North Carolina governor shows the race is competitive.

Democrat Beverly Perdue and Republican Pat McCrory released reports summarizing their campaign's fiscal conditions late Monday, hours before the final disclosure report had to be filed prior to Election Day.

Perdue, the lieutenant governor, reported raising $4.6 million from July 1 through the middle of October, compared to $2.8 million for McCrory, the Charlotte mayor. Perdue also spent more -- $5.7 million to $3.3 million for McCrory.

But McCrory has benefited from outside groups more than Perdue. The Republican Governors Association's political arm in North Carolina has spent more than $4 million on television ads and mailers critical of Perdue.
