E.C. Sykes sets GOP Secretary of State Fundraising Record, Continues to Outpace Marshall

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     Today, E.C. Sykes, the Republican nominee for North Carolina Secretary of State, announced his financial supporters broke the fundraising record set in 1996 for this seat and there are four months remaining in the campaign. In less than a year since announcing his candidacy, the campaign has raised in excess of $409,000 including the $154,903.79 raised in the most recent period. He has also set a new standard by out raising his opponent, Elaine Marshall, in every reporting period.

    "Our entire team is grateful for the financial supporters who are standing with us to put a conservative business leader in the office that supports economic growth. It shows that people throughout the state are ready for a change, ready for a political outsider, a business leader, not a 24 year incumbent career politician. When we first started this campaign, we laid out a plan much like a business would on how we were going to win this election. We knew that it was going to take a considerable amount of money to go up against the liberal Democrat machine," said Sykes. "Although we're proud of what we've accomplished in terms of fundraising, we also recognize that this is only half of the equation. We've put significant resources into building a grassroots army that spans the entire state, and we've seen the fruits of that labor. Everywhere we travel, we see more and more voters who have heard about the movement we're building and are eager to join it. Now more than ever, we can't afford to take our foot off the gas pedal — we must keep working hard every hour of every day if we hope to deliver the change that North Carolinians need and deserve — transparent, citizen-led government."
