Perdue campaign spends $46K in final months

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Former North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue’s campaign still had more than $1 million a few days before she left office.

The Bev Perdue Committee told the State Board of Elections in a campaign report she spent $46,000 from late October through Dec. 31. Perdue did not run for re-election in 2012.

Perdue’s report that the board received Monday said she gave $4,000 each to fellow Democrat Walter Dalton’s unsuccessful gubernatorial campaign and Linda Coleman’s legal fund as Coleman closely examined ballots in her narrow loss to Dan Forest for lieutenant governor.

Perdue gave $250,000 to the state Democratic Party during the third quarter.

A Perdue spokesman has said she intends to use some funds to produce papers about her time in office. The committee owes Perdue and her husband $776,000.
