Sen. Wiley Nickel, Democratic Congressional candidate for NC-06 blew past the $500,000 fundraising mark in the fourth quarter. Nickel is running a campaign focused on building a broad coalition of support, and talking about issues that matter for North Carolina’s working families. The campaign will report over $515,000 as of the fourth quarter filing, making Nickel the top fundraiser in the race by a wide margin.

“Our team is thrilled by the level of support we’ve received over the past few months,” said Abby May, Campaign Manager. “The voters truly appreciate Wiley’s hard work during his two terms in the North Carolina Senate, and they want him to fill David Price’s shoes in Congress. Wiley has raised far more than any other candidate in this race. It’s really incredible to see.” 

Wiley Nickel is a former Obama White House staffer. He serves in the North Carolina Senate representing District 16 in western Wake county. He has a record of strong engagement on environmental issues, voting rights, wealth and income inequality, and social justice.

“We’re going to keep working hard to earn every vote in the May 17th Democratic primary,” said Nickel, “I’m humbled by the depth of our support. With this level of fundraising, we’ve been able to get a big head start on having meaningful conversations with Democratic primary voters. These fundraising numbers show that our positive campaign for change is catching on with the voters.”
