So this is what the GOP-led US House of Representives spent it's first day back from recess on:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- After a five-week summer recess, one of the House of Representatives' first items of business was a vote on a bill to ban horse slaughtering in the United States.

Heath Shuler for Congress:
Total Contributions (other than loans) 313,563.84
Cash On Hand At Close Of The Reporting Period 668,745.43
Total Contributions (other than loans) 172,819.85
Cash On Hand At Close Of The Reporting Period 237,924.47
Each candidate has now raised over a million dollars. Charles Taylor spent most of his trying to pay himself back for all the personal money he spent to smear Patsy Keever on television and radio in 2004. Heath Shuler has spent his building a ground game.
