A group of local Democrats gave $22,000 in their unsuccessful last-minute TV ad against school board candidates Debra Goldman, Chris Malone and Deborah Prickett.
In this campaign finance report filed this week by Wake Citizens for Good Government, Democratic pollster Dean Debnam turned out to be the main financial backer. He donated $4,000 and loaned $6,000. The loan was repaid.
Democratic political strategist Ken Eudy and National Education Association Executive Director John Wilson both gave $4,000.
