Because he announced in January, the Republican candidate has not had to release any campaign finance information so far.
But a review of donations to his mayoral campaign shows that he shared 34 contributors with Perdue, the frontrunner in the Democratic primary.
The list includes Nascar president Michael Helton, developer Peter Pappas, Duke Energy executive James Turner, the Piedmont Natural Gas PAC and the Little & Associates Architects PAC. Nearly all of the contributors are from Charlotte.
McCrory also shared 26 donors with Democratic candidate Richard Moore, including Derick Close, a textile executive who is Erskine Bowles' brother-in-law; Horizon Energy CEO Aubrey Hilliard; Bobcats Sports & Entertainment executive Fred Whitfield and the Piedmont Natural Gas PAC.
By contrast, McCrory shared few contributors with his Republican rivals.
