GREENSBORO — Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan says she raised more than $2 million for her 2014 re-election bid in North Carolina during the final three months of 2013.

Hagan’s campaign office announced the amount Tuesday, more than a week before her fourth-quarter report is due to the Federal Election Commission. The campaign says it had more than 15,000 donors in the fourth quarter and $6.8 million on hand as of Dec. 31.

At least six Republicans are vying for the GOP nomination in the May primary and the chance to challenge her.

Hagan had outraised Republican rivals through September and faces no prominent primary opposition to date. That will allow her to use her funds for her general election campaign.

Pretty obvious

It's pretty obvious that with this kind of money pouring in and on-hand she is someone's puppet. It's interesting how the insider candidates receive lots of money in quantities exceeding $1000 per donation. It is rare that ordinary citizens give more than that at one time. These are not individual citizens supporting good government but special interest individuals ultimately in line for so of the spoils produced as the elected official begins or continues to wield their "special influence" in areas that benefit their supporters. Why would we elect someone who is part of the problem. Isn't it time to do something different and elect someone who understands the purpose of government and believes in the sovereignty of the individual and the subservience of the government. Most politicians believe it to be the other way around.
