WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Federal reports show incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC7) leading potential challengers in fundraising during the second quarter of 2013.
McIntyre, who won a ninth term in office in 2012, raised more than $235,000 from April 1 through June 30, according to recently filed documents with the Federal Elections Commission. The infusion of campaign funds put McIntyre at $383,067 cash on hand at the end of the reporting period.
