Campaign Finance Reports Show Republicans Have Deeper Pockets Heading Into General Election in November

By Jesse Wood

Sept. 4, 2014. Second quarter finance reports, which were due July 10, show that Republican candidates – N.C. Sen. Dan Soucek, N.C. Rep. Jonathan Jordan and U.S Rep. Virginia Foxx – have significantly more cash on hand two months before the general election than their Democratic opponents – Jim Sponenberg, Sue Counts and Josh Brannon.

As usual, Foxx has ridiculously deeper pockets than her candidate. Foxx has more than $2.1 million cash on hand, while the challenger has just more than $5,000. Foxx’s campaign has also spent more than $300,000, while finance reports for Brannon’s campaign notes $0 in expenditures.

While Jordan has more cash on hand than Counts, both have spent roughly the same amount of money during this election cycle. Jordan has spent nearly $46,000, while Counts has spent just over $43,000.

Soucek dominates Sponenberg in each of the cash-on-hand, expenditures and receipts categories as well.
