Rep. McIntyre's campaign coffers still filled with cash as term winds down

Rep. Mike McIntyre's career in Congress is almost over, but he still boasts a large amount of cash in his campaign committee coffers Rep. Mike McIntyre's career in Congress is almost over, but he still boasts a large amount of cash in his campaign committee coffers
WASHINGTON, DC (WECT) -

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC), who announced earlier this year that he would not run for re-election, still maintains a large war chest of campaign cash as he winds down his final year as a member of Congress. The nine-term Democrat from Lumberton has several times the amount of funds raised by the candidates who are looking to replace him in Washington, DC.

A report filed late Monday with the Federal Elections Commission shows the Mike McIntyre for Congress committee with $451,452.07 cash on hand at the end of the second quarter of 2014. That is $22,639.27 less than the total reported at the end of the first quarter. According to the report, McIntyre's campaign refunded $3,500 worth of contributions in the second quarter, with $2,500 being returned to individual contributors and $1,000 to Political Action Committees.

By contrast, the candidates running to succeed McIntyre have a small percentage of his available cash. Republican nominee David Rouzer of Benson claims the most contributions, with $90,021 cash on hand according to the FEC report filed by his David Rouzer for Congress committee. Rouzer also reported spending more than $404,000 in the second quarter, during a combative primary campaign against Woody White of Wilmington.

Jonathan Barfield of Wilmington, the Democratic nominee for the 7th Congressional District race, reported having $4,317 cash on hand in his first-quarter report to the FEC. Libertarian candidate J. Wesley Casteen has not filed campaign fundraising reports since announcing his candidacy.

McIntyre's Campaign Treasurer, Marion Thompson, says the Congressman does not plan to contribute any of his funds to other candidates in this election campaign. That is one use of the funds allowed by FEC rules. Candidates can also use the money for expenses incurred with "winding down the office of a former federal officeholder". Using the campaign funds to buy gifts or make donations "of nominal value" to persons other than the candidate's family is allowed, along with donations to charitable organizations, transfers to any national, state or local political party committees or candidates.

    Congressman David Rouzer (R-NC7) said he welcomes the input of students across the country on how to keep schools safe but does not support tougher gun control measures to do it. “This is an issue that has a lot of complexities to it,” Rep. Rouzer said. “If you were to ban all guns tomorrow, I think you’d still have school shootings.".
