The Alliance for North Carolina may not be going away.
A spokesman for the independent 527 group, which ran five ads against Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory during the fall campaign, said that it may still play a role in state politics.
"As issues present themselves where we feel the need to take a stand, we will," said Scott Falmlen, a Democratic political consultant.
That would be fairly unusual for a group that got its start essentially as a hit-and-run organization against a GOP candidate for governor in Oklahoma. It would also require more fundraising, since the group appears to have about $350,000 left.
About 88 percent of the Alliance's funding this year came from the Democratic Governors Association, or $3.7 out of $4.2 million dollars it received, according to reports filed with the State Board of Elections.
The State Employees Association of N.C., which is affiliated with SEIU, also gave $5,000.
