Rouzer raising money at D.C. lobbying firm

UPDATED: Former state Sen. David Rouzer is hitting the donor circuit again in his second bid for Congress.

Rouzer traveled to Washington for a fundraiser Wednesday featuring Republican Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy of California and the GOP members of the N.C. congressional delegation, according to an invite.

The noon fundraiser is at the offices of lobbying firm Meyers & Associates. It costs hosts $2,500 to attend with the minimum contribution at $250. A Rouzer spokesman said the space is being rented from the lobbying firm by the campaign.

Rouzer is trying again to beat Democratic Congressman Mike McIntyre. He narrowly lost in the 2012 election and announced a second bid just a few months later.

Groups tally outside spending in North Carolina

Two public-interest organizations have analyzed outside election spending in North Carolina and 20 other states, and on Thursday released a report on their findings. The report is meant to draw attention to what it sees as a big problem: too much money is being spent by outside and secretive interests on federal campaigns.

Morning Roundup: McIntyre feels like underdog in race against Rouzer

Democratic incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre has a target on his back, and big money from conservative super PACs is backing Republican challenger David Rouzer. Here's the story.

Libertarian candidate for governor Barbara Howe is running for election 5K by 5K across the state. Read about that.

Congressional Leadership Fund muscles-up Rouzer race against McIntyre

The big guns are coming out now. In what is already one of the most expensive congressional races in the country, North Carolina’s 7th District is getting another infusion of super PAC money from national interests.

The Congressional Leadership Fund’s first ad against incumbent Democrat Rep. Mike McIntyre is being released Friday, at a cost of $575,000. Following the narrative of ads by other groups supporting Republican challenger David Rouzer, this one tries to tie McIntyre to liberals in Washington, faults him for voting for the stimulus bill and for what it says is his failure to pass any of his own bills into law.

Another ad to boost Rouzer portays McIntyre as 'Washington liberal'

 

YG Network, one of the outside interest groups injecting huge amounts of money into the race between Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre and Republican challenger David Rouzer – more than $740,000 so far – is out with a new TV commercial.

The ad, which began airing in the Triangle and Wilmington on Thursday, picks up on the dominant theme of the national Republican effort to unseat McIntyre: that the conservative Democrat is a liberal henchman for President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The spot features cartoon characters playing football.

“A master of the sneak, Mike McIntyre acts one way in North Carolina but in Washington he stars on the liberal team,” the ad says. It concludes with a heroic image of a cartoon Rouzer: “Vote for young, conservative star David Rouzer.”

YG Network reports spending nearly $1.3 million on this spot, which runs from Thursday to Nov. 5, and on another recent spot.
