the NandO last Wednesday:
Rep. Jeff Jackson said Wednesday morning he requested a campaign donation refund from N.C. Rep. Tricia Cotham after she “misrepresented herself” during the 2022 election.
“I took her at her word,” Jackson said about why he donated to her campaign. “That turned out to be a mistake.”
His campaign was among seven people or groups receiving refunds of their donations to Cotham’s campaign during the last six months.
Refunds totaling $8,500 (according to Cotham's mid-year finance report) have been returned to donors and are itemized by Battaglia. They range from a major California pro-women's rights fundraiser to an Elizabeth City school teacher and a Southport lawyer.
