For a black and white testament to Dole’s absenteeism from North Carolina, all one has to do is take a look at her balance sheet. Elizabeth Dole has received the majority of her campaign contributions from outside North Carolina.

It’s no wonder North Carolinians aren’t interested in donating to a senator who has put special interests and George Bush before everything else.
