Federal Elections Commission reports are in for the 1st Quarter of 2010 (January 1 - March 31), and Billy Kennedy took in over $100,000 to Foxx's $102,000. Wha???
Take a look at the FEC filing documents for yourself: Here's Foxx's. And here's Billy Kennedy's.
This is huge news. To our knowledge, no Democratic candidate in the NC-5 has ever shown this kind of fundraising prowess ... especially not against The Madam.
Furthermore, the Kennedy campaign is reporting that most of their money is coming from small donors, over 900 of them. Most of Foxx's money is coming from big Special Interests, including the American Bankers' Association, the National Association of Health Underwriters, and the National Association of Realtors PAC.
For a two-term professional politician like Virginia Foxx, this is a major embarrassment and proof of vunerability.
