WILMINGTON NC (WECT) – Rep. Mike McIntyre continued to raise money for a re-election campaign in the weeks before he announced intentions to retire from the House of Representatives at the end of his current term.

The "Mike McIntyre for Congress" Committee filed its 2013 year-end finance report with the Federal Elections Commission on Thursday. The report shows McIntyre's committee raised $184,220 in the fourth quarter of 2013, including $167,021 from Political Action Committees.  Some of the larger PAC contributions came from AFSCME ($6,500), BRIDGE ($5,000) IBEW ($5,000) & the International Association of Firefighters ($5,000).

The report shows the McIntyre committee ended 2013 with $633,021 cash on hand.

Federal campaign law dictates what a candidate can do with unused contributions. Among the allowed uses are donations to charity, contributions to the national party committee or another candidate's committee (limit of $2,000), and even converting the candidate's campaign committee into a PAC.  The candidate can also keep the money in the account untouched, should they decide to use it to run another campaign in the future.

"Congressman McIntyre has not yet explored which option he will choose," said Andrew Simpson, McIntyre's Communications Director. "The Congressman has traditionally stayed out of other races because he has friends on both sides of the aisle, and does not plan to change that practice."
