Smith raised $690,000 by end of 2007

Fred Smith raised $690,922 by the end of 2007.

The Republican gubernatorial candidate raised $632,984 from larger donors, including state Rep. Carolyn Justice, Raleigh attorney Perry Safran and developer Andy Ammons, according to a campaign finance report filed with the State Board of Elections today.

He raised $28,823 from donors who gave less than $50; $14,500 from political action committees, including Progress Energy, Wachovia and Wal-Mart; and $14,500 from political campaigns, including state Reps. Mitch Gillespie and Leo Daughtry.

In addition, he loaned his campaign $1.9 million.

At the same time, Smith spent $1.5 million on barbecue, renting facilities for campaign events, production of television ads, consultants, signs and bumper stickers.

That left him with $1.1 million in cash on hand at the end of the year.

Well darn

RTB - They won't be news then, I can go inform myself at that point. Have you gotten nothing from the campaigns?

Throw us political junkies a bone.

It would seem they have everything to lose by telling you an incorrect number. You posted earlier numbers sans SBOE online report.


Re: Any word on Lt. Gov?

I'll post them when they go up on the SBOE Web site.

Any word on Lt. Gov?

Imagine Pittenger, Dalton and Dellinger have raised a fair amount.
