NC, federal candidates announce campaign money

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Two North Carolina Democrats primed to take on Republican Gov. Pat McCrory in 2016 both say they raised six figures for their campaign coffers in the second half of last year.

Attorney General Roy Cooper's campaign finance report says his committee raised $589,000 in the six months ending Dec. 31 and has nearly $1 million in its coffers. Durham attorney Ken Spaulding announced he raised just over $100,000 in the same period.

Friday is a deadline for state and federal campaigns to disclose what they raised and spent.

Cooper has said he's planning for a gubernatorial race but hasn't yet confirmed he will run. He rolled out a web video message this week asking supporters to join in his opposition to Republican policies. Spaulding already has announced he's a candidate.
