We're Getting Our A**es Kicked

Okay folks. This started off as as comment, but got a little long and a little scary. I wanted to see how much our unchallenged Dems (either no challenger or no serious challenger) could donate to our big name races.

This is the amount in the bank for our unchallenged Dems. What should they do with it?--break-->
NC - 01 BUTTERFIELD, G K ... $56,016
NC - 02 ETHERIDGE, BOB ..... $626,746
NC - 04 PRICE, DAVID E ..... $174,001
NC - 07 MCINTYRE, MIKE ..... $1,264,843
NC - 12 WATT, MELVIN L ..... $162,182

But, then I decided I should do the opposite and see how much the uncontested Republicans (same criteria) could give to these races.

NC - 01 BUTTERFIELD, G K..... $56,016
NC - 03 JONES, WALTER B...... $385,203
NC - 05 FOXX, VIRGINIA ...... $647,800
NC - 06 COBLE, JOHN HOWARD .. $824,501
NC - 09 MYRICK, SUE ......... $277,391

I'm being kind by not puttin Hayes in here, he has $1Million to $45K for Kissell.

To put it bluntly, we're getting our asses kicked. This is very worrisome because you can bet all of this money will get dumped into the ONE key race in North Carolina. Shuler is currently leading his opponent, but how long before the big checks start flowing from these Republicans to his campaign?


Not to mention this guy

Who has $13 Million sitting in his coffers.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

The only good news is that

Hayes won't be sharing since it will take every penny he has to battle Kissell. Where did McIntyre's money come from?

looks like a lot of developers, contractors, and people in real estate, actually:


and quite a number of retired people!

wouldn't it be great if

wouldn't it be great if mcintyre would get off his butt and help out these crucial NC races?

He could contribute

$4200 to Kissell and Shuler...then start a leadership pac that could also send $10,000 to each. Kissell needs it more than Shuler.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

dem voter turn out efforts

Another way they could use their money is to help with get out the vote efforts (dems and indys) state-wide. That way, not only would the other Dems running for congress benefit, but so would the whole ticket.

Excellent Idea RaleighRob

It helps the entire party. He has enough to help candidates and GOTV.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

NC-01 in prime time

Anyone notice that NC-01 was mentioned on "West Wing" last night??


I missed it. I was driving back from DC between 8 pm and 2 am in a torrential storm. I bet WW would have been WAY more fun. I'm going to miss that show.
