NC Fundraising - Obama Up 3 to 1

Heavy support from the Triangle -- and from supporters of John Edwards -- helped Democrat Barack Obama outraise Hillary Clinton nearly 3 to 1 among N.C. donors last month, reflecting his huge cash advantage heading into the state's May 6 primary.

North Carolinians gave Obama nearly $607,000 in March, three times more than they gave Clinton, according to an Observer analysis of campaign reports. Nationally, the Illinois Democrat raised twice as much as the New York senator last month.
