Re: Burr has $3 million

Burr is the NC equivalent of PAC Man. But, this is trivial in contrast to the massive amount of money he will have next year - from PACs, Corporate lackeys and Lobbyists. We need to get rid of Burr, he is an embarrassment to the people who elected him.

Re: Burr has $3 million

Ben,

Shouldn’t the headline read: Burr has 3.4 million. Considering that $461,445 you left off is almost 3 times the amount any of his opposition has. Just trying to be fair since you put Lewis and Marshall’s numbers up like that. Thanks.
