NC Governor Candidates Tout Money, Supporters

North Carolina Democrats running for governor are trumpeting their fundraising and prominent supporters as they try attracting attention during early voting ahead of next week's primary election.

Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton's campaign said he raised nearly $650,000 in the year's first 3 1/2 months. Bob Etheridge's campaign said he'll report raising more than $310,000 since he entered the race two months ago. Bill Faison's campaign did not release a preview of his first-quarter fundraising report.

The reports are due Monday.

Presumptive Republican nominee Pat McCrory's campaign said last week he raised nearly $1.7 million so far this year. McCrory planned a Raleigh fundraiser Monday headlined by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

One-stop voting continues through Saturday ahead of the state's primary elections May 8.
