RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina Democrats are losing the fundraising battle by a wide margin with less than four months to go until the general election.

Recently released campaign finance reports show that state Republicans raised more than four times as much money during a 10-week reporting period between late April and June 30.

Republicans raised nearly $772,000 and ended with about $966,000 in cash. Democrats pulled in a little less than $185,000 and had almost $188,000 cash on hand during the same amount of time.

The greatest disparity was between individual donations. Republicans raked in $212,000. Democrats brought in $2,700.

A NC Democratic party spokesman says organizers don't want to fully tap into contacts until closer to the election. The state Republican party spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.

Well, after you buy food, pay the rent,....

....and buy all the crack you can, there isn't much left for the average Democrat to contribute.

Yes, I understand that there are a lot of well-educated, guilty liberals who bemoan their success in life and don't use drugs, but they don't NEED drugs. They come by "stupid" naturally.

A successful person voting for a Democrat is identical to a woman inviting a known rapist home for a few drinks. You KNOW what's going to happen.
