Fjeld raises $130,000 in challenge to Coble

Posted by Rob Christensen on October 15, 2013 

Former UNC official Laura Fjeld, a Democrat seeking to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, has raised $130,000 since she began her campaign this summer.

Fjeld reported having $96,148 on hand at the end of September. Until recently, she was vice president and general counsel for the University of North Carolina system.

She expressed gratitude for the support she has received for the 6th District race.

“Congressman Coble’s shutdown of our nation’s government is hurting North Carolinians at every level and delivering a self-inflicted wound to our economy that families and businesses cannot afford – but it’s also reinforcing just how out of touch Congressman Coble’s reckless Washington politics are with the values of North Carolina families,” Fjeld said in a statement.
