#NCSEN: NCGA helps Tesla, car firm’s lawyers give BIG to Thom Tillis Senate campaign

The Daily Haymaker, January 5, 2014

We’ve been doing a lot of campaign finance report reading lately.  We’ve found some interesting things about beer and movies on the Thom Tillis Committee’s financial reports.  Our latest find — some large donations from employees of a Massachusetts law firm — had us scratching our heads.

On June 27,  Massachusetts resident Jeanette Campbell, identified on Tillis campaign reports as an employee of the Campbell, Campbell, Edwards & Conroy law firm, gave Tillis $250.  On September 12, she gave $2350 to the North Carolina speaker’s senate campaign.  On September 30, it was reported that Ms. Campbell gave $2,600 to the Tillis campaign.

5 candidates in running as possible replacement for Brunstetter

Winston-Salem Journal, January 5, 2014

YADKINVILLE — In the maneuvering to replace former Republican state Sen. Pete Brunstetter, the Yadkin County GOP holds a kingmaker card.

The question, days before a group of about 140 Yadkin and Forsyth County Republicans will nominate the replacement, is how the Yadkin GOP members will play that card, if at all.
