There has recently been some misinformation about where our current Senator Jim Davis campaign money came from. To set the record straight, only 6 percent, $25,380, of it came from people in his district. And much of that came from a few maxed-out donors and their families, people who could afford the $4,000 maximum per-person contribution. The figures are recorded in the N.C. Board of Elections web site.
According to that database, Davis raised a total of $500,337, not counting loans to his campaign. Davis was the beneficiary of over $265,000 in Super Pac money, which was traced back to Art Pope and his various front groups.
