Wake County school board member Keith Sutton raised more than $30,000 during his lopsided election win in District 4 last fall.
In Sutton's final campaign report filed Thursday, the Democratic-backed candidate reported raising $33,327 and spending $32,484.31. His Republican challenger, Venita Peyton, hasn't filed her final report yet. But she had reported raising $1,280 as of Sept. 26.
Sutton's report seems to be missing some info. He reports having raised $5,500 from other political committees on his summary page. But the actual page listing this contribution or contributions isn't included.
Sutton will likely have to amend the report to account for that $5,500.
Of the donations listed, the largest one for Sutton in this new report is the $1,500 from the Wake County Democratic Party.
Some other donors in this new report include Wake County Clerk of Court Lorrin Freeman, attorney Swain Wood and Lou Fabrizio, who heads the state's public school testing program.
Not knowing who is in that unaccounted $5,500, Sutton's biggest donors overall in the campaign were John and Ann Campbell. Both gave him $4,000. He also got $2,000 from Capitol Broadcasting CEO Jim Goodmon.
Sutton went on to get 80.9 percent of the vote in October and later be chosen board vice chairman.
