GOP candidate seeks to grab open NC-11 seat.
Republican Congressional candidate Mark Meadows – a Jackson County real-estate investor – is attempting to gain some traction and separate himself from the rest of the GOP field, which includes seven other challengers, before the May primary. Meadows’ greatest strength thus far may be his ability to self-finance his campaign and raise additional money, an asset that has become crucial for anyone seeking political office to have in the modern era.
Indeed, 78 percent of Meadows’ campaign money raised came from his wallet. The latest campaign finance report released on Dec. 31, shows that his campaign has more money on hand with $321,832 than any other candidate.
