Robert Pittenger breaks fundraising record

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2012 at 2:39 PM

Robert Pittenger proves you really can be your biggest fan.

According to the Charlotte Observer, the Republican has broken the $3 million fundraising mark for the first time in 9th District - and possibly North Carolina - congressional-race history. With about $3.05 million, Pittenger out-raised his Democrat opponent, Jennifer Roberts, who raised about $449,000 through September.

But here's the kicker:

Most of Pittenger’s money — $1.9 million — came as a contribution from the candidate himself during his contested primary campaign. Through July, no House candidate in the country reached as deeply into his own pocket.

The new report also shows that Pittenger loaned his campaign another $305,000.

Nearly all of Roberts' loot came from individual donors.
