Press Release:

    Charlotte     United States Senate candidate and Former North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory raised more than all of his primary opponents combined in the second quarter, according to FEC reports filed yesterday. Political observers across North Carolina and the country took notice. This is what they're saying:

    Karl Rove, Former Deputy Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush, said "Just Out: NC Senate GOP Fundraising: McCrory $1,240,000 Budd $700,000 Walker $156,000. Former Gov. raises more than opponents combined."

    Jewish Insider: "Even with such high-profile backing, the congressman failed to top the apparent GOP frontrunner, former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, who raked in approximately $1.2 million."

    Josh Kraushaar, columnist at National Journal, said: "#NCSEN: Trump-endorsed Rep. Ted Budd releases fundraising figures — brings in 950K for the quarter. Doesn't disclose if any of money is self-funded // will have to wait for filing tonight. Not the type of $$ number you'd want with the Trump endorsement. Behind McCrory/Beasley."

    Joe Bruno, reporter at WSOC-TV, the No. 1 news station in Charlotte, said: "Per the latest filing, some notable donors to Pat McCrory's #ncsen campaign include Dan DiMicco, Doug Lebda, Felix Sabates and Tariq Bokhari's campaign committee. McCrory raised more than $1.24 million in the second quarter. He has $955K on hand"

    Bruno added: "Not mentioned in the Budd press release: Of the $950K haul for Budd this quarter, $250K of it is because of a loan from the candidate himself, per the filing. Actual amount raised

    $700K. Notable donors include Richard Childress and Dan DiMicco #ncsen"

    Zac McCrary, a Democrat pollster and political podcaster: Budd "faceplants"

    The Hill: "But even in races without a pro-impeachment GOP incumbent, Trump's endorsement didn't necessarily equate to fundraising supremacy."
