At least, that's what his campaign manager Lauren Moore told CharO. Why he puts them ahead of us, I have no idea. Since we all know how much they love the McHorny one.
But, there's no accounting for taste. And $120,000 is about ten times more than the 2004 Democratic candidate raised in her entire campaign and five times what the last candidate raised. So mazel tov, Daniel.
We'll confirm that once we see the FEC filing . . .
Hey, Lauren, don't forget to notify all the small newspapers in the district. There's two in Newland and then there's Spruce Pine and Morganton, Hickory, Lincoln, Shelby, Gastonia, Lenoir. (I've got links for LTEs along the left column) Most of them never ran his announcement so I wonder if anyone told them. But those are the places you need to contact if you want to reach your potential swing voters.
Not that many people read the Charlotte Observer compared to the local papers. And McHenry always gets his stuff in those little ones. They'll print pretty much anything you send them. If you send it and call them to confirm.
Don't expect the CharO to do you any favors. Lisa Z drinks McHenry's kool-aid. Just look her up. Every time he has a scandal, she writes a puff piece. When things get rough, she's going to screw you. Don't say you weren't warned.
