WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Voters in southeastern North Carolina don't get their say at the polls until the middle of March, but if you follow the money, you get an indication of who has some support in the presidential race in this area.

According to numbers aggregated from the Center for Responsive Politics through the end of January, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has raised more money than any other candidate in the Wilmington metro area.  Bush has collected $43,350.  He attended a fundraiser on his behalf in Wilmington last August. 

Ben Carson, who also attended a fundraiser in Wilmington in early January, has the second most donations for this area at $27,130. 

Hillary Clinton leads the Democrats in this area with $18,216. Her primary opponent Bernie Sanders has collected $3,479 from southeastern North Carolinians. 

Statewide, Clinton has a significant fundraising lead, collecting $1,083,111. Carson has raised the most money among the GOP candidates at $716,113. 

The only candidates remaining in the presidential campaign who have not raised any money in this area are Ohio Governor John Kasich and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
