A few campaign finance reports are still straggling in from candidates running for office this year.
Incumbent Secretary of State Elaine Marshall’s report finally appeared online on Wednesday. It shows her campaign committee received $132,000 in 2015 and ended the year with $73,000 left over. She loaned her campaign $91,000.
Republican challenger A.J. Daoud, a Pilot Mountain funeral home director and former 6th Congressional District Republican Party chairman, reports receiving $870 in contributions from individuals. He has loaned himself $170,000.
The finance report of another Republican secretary of state primary candidate, Anthony LaPaglia of Durham, has not yet made it to the state Board of Elections website. He previously reported putting about $1,700 of his own money into the campaign.
Still MIA: Lt. Gov. Dan Forest’s report.
