They’re back: Real Jobs NC unleashes money in North Carolina state races

They’re back.

Real Jobs NC, one of the key groups that spent money to help Republicans win over the North Carolina legislature in 2010, filed campaign reports over the last week that show they’re hoping big money can again translate into political victories.

A so-called 527 political group, Real Jobs NC earned notoriety in 2010 as the biggest outside spending group in North Carolina state-level races, pumping $1.5 million into 19 legislative contests.

The new reports filed with the Internal Revenue Service and N.C. State Board of Elections show Real Jobs NC had raised more than $850,000 by the end of September 2012 to help state GOP candidates this election cycle.

The top contributor to Real Jobs NC is a familiar player: the Republican Governors Association, based in Washington, D.C., which has reportedly raised $88 million nationally — compared to $23.6 million for its Democratic counterpart — and has run a series of ads attacking Democratic gubernatorial candidate Walter Dalton.
