WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — As Election Day inches closer, the ballpark campaign is heating up. But who’s behind the funding for the race?

According to financial reports, funding for the “Vote Yes” campaign was mainly donated by groups who would directly benefit from a ballpark in the Port City.

The Wilmington Family Entertainment and Baseball Coalition has raised nearly $113,000. Mandalay Baseball Properties and the Atlanta Braves pitched in $12,500. The two companies that own land for proposed sites contributed a combined $37,000. Only two individuals donated to the cause, including campaign spokesman Terry Spencer.

“Vote No Stadium Tax” raised $38,000. While there were 11 individual donors, most of the money, $32,000, came from the conservative group Americans for Prosperity.
