Buttigieg leads Dem 2020 hopefuls in N.C. fundraising

Buttigieg leads Dem 2020 hopefuls in N.C. fundraising
By Allison Winter - 8/8/2019

WASHINGTON Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has raised more money in North Carolina than any other Democratic candidate, outpacing his rivals in fundraising even while he lags in national polls.

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has raised $157,402 for his campaign from North Carolina contributors, putting him significantly above the totals in the state for Democratic heavy-weights like former vice president Joe Biden and well-known U.S. senators.

The standings come from a Policy Watch analysis of Federal Election Commission data of campaign contributions through the end of June. They include itemized contributions all donations that exceed $200 as well as some smaller donations detailed by the campaign.

Buttigieg, 37, has branded himself as the millennial candidate in a crowded field. He has energized LGBTQ support with his surprisingly strong run as a young, gay, married man. He is also a veteran of the war in Afghanistan and a former Rhodes scholar.

Much more at the link. Worth a read.
