NC-11 Congressional Fundraising Race
July 27, 2011 Update



This is the first fundraising report of the 2012 11th Congressional Race. I expect to be filing these every quarter, more often if the situation warrants.

The Republican candidates are announcing for this office much earlier than they traditionally have in the past, perhaps spurred on by the promise of a newly redrawn district that is favorable to electing a Republican coupled with the realization that announcing in September doesn't really give a campaign time to train, equip and deploy an effective team of campaigners and fundraisers. With that being said, I'm not sure that any of the Republicans will be able to assemble a team anywhere as effective as Congressman Heath Shuler has...primarily because of sharp ideological divisions in the local Republican Party in the 11th Congressional District of North Carolina has left the Republican political talent of the district in opposing camps.


Leaving ideologies alone for the moment, here is how the race looks from a fundraising standpoint, from records provided by the Federal Elections Commission:






Congressman Heath Shuler
Amount Raised in Quarter: $48,050
Cash on Hand: $248,338.84
Debts: $0





Dr Dan Eichenbaum
Amount Raised in Quarter: $0
Cash on Hand: $89.74
Debts: $100,000 (loans made by candidate to his campaign during 2010 primary)





Cecil Bothwell
Amount Raised in Quarter: No data available from FEC
Cash on Hand: No data available from FEC
Debts: No data available from FEC





Spence Campbell
Amount Raised in Quarter: Had Not Filed Run During Quarter
Cash on Hand: Had Not Filed Run During Quarter
Debts: Had Not Filed Run During Quarter

Jeff Hunt (candidate appears to not have a website at this time
**7.38pm** CORRECTION: He does have a website.
Amount Raised in Quarter: Had Not Filed Run During Quarter
Cash on Hand: Had Not Filed Run During Quarter
Debts: Had Not Filed Run During Quarter


The race is young, and we'll have clearer picture of things in three months, and an even better one six months from now.


The current standing of the money ace:


$245,338.84 Congressman Heath Shuler (Democrat)
$0 Cecil Bothwell (Democrat) He filed first, so until more data becomes available, I'm listing him first
$0 Spence Campbell  (Republican) 
$0 Jeff Hunt (Republican)
$-99,910.26 Dr Dan Eichenbaum (Republican)
