Charlotte Observer, Jim Morrill, February 10, 2014
Cornelius Republican Thom Tillis has added 10 more
and more than a dozen state lawmakers to the list of donors to his Senate
campaign, according to a new campaign report.
Tillis has raised $1.8 million, more than three times any GOP opponent. However, he trails Sen. Kay Hagan, who raised $9.9 million last year.
Tillis’ nearest Republican competitor financially is Greg Brannon, a
physician who raised $524,500.
Tillis, speaker of the N.C. House, continued to benefit from support of GOP congressional leaders. Earlier donations came from the political action committees of House Speaker John Boehner of
and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
