    By my count, something close to $60,000 of Frank Moretz’ campaign contributions come from PACs, mostly related to anesthesiology practice. Another $20,000 from MDs, many of them anesthesiologists. Almost all the rest comes from the NCGOP, and from Moretz himself, a retired anesthesiologist.

    By comparison, while John Ager does take some PAC and party money, the vast majority of his contributions come from individuals, mostly small donations.

    That pretty much says it all for me.
