some money," Dr.
Green said. "But we still
can't sell the black com
munity down the tube
The money refers to
At the Durham Com
mittee meeting, Michaux
gave an off-the-cuff
financial report. He said
that of his total cam
paign expense of just
over $200,000, about
40 came from, labor
groups and political ac
tion committees. He said
he loaned the campaign
about $80,000 personal
ly, and the rest of about
$65,000 came from in
According to Michaux's
reckoning, this works
out to about $6500 per
county in the ten-county
2nd District, about 45
per cent of which came
from black contributors.
The implication was
clear: during the cam
paign, black folks didn't
match their enthusiasm
So now that the
Michaux campaign has
an outstanding debt to
pay off, there are those
who say that Gov.
Hunt's promise to buy
250 tickets to a fun
.draiser scheduled for
later this month has had
serious significance on
The tickets are $50
each, so if Hunt buys
250, it means $12,500

get the money from
Hunt, what will Hunt
. The write-in effort is
seen fas divisive to the
Democratic Party, and it
is generally understood
that Hunt needs a united '
party if he is to have a
chance r in a : projected
U.S. Senate race against
incumbent Jesse Helms.
Sources say that Hunt
has dispatched his senior
advisor, Ben Ruffin, into
the fray to make sure
that the write-in loses
Ruffin became iden
tified with the write-in
opposition ; when Gov.
Hunt, speaking recently
before the N.C. Associa
tion of Black Elected Of
ficials, urged . 2nd
District blacks to get
behind I.T. "Tim"
Valentine. Hunt's state
ment came one week
after the 2nd District
Black Caucus launched
the write-in effort.
And that's why many
blacks are simply mad.
They say white
Democrats are only con
cerned about party unity

is running against

But when a black person
wants to represent the
Democratic Party, many
Wacks say . party unity
becomes a secondary
issue to race.
Now. back to Ruffin.

This case is still pending.
But for all practical purposes, of

incident rather than as an indication
of a, possible pattern, despite a

understand the operations of the
