WILMINGTON — A North Carolina congressional candidate says he’s putting his money where his mouth is when it comes to following through on a term-limits pledge.

Republican Will Breazeale said he signed a promissory note Thursday giving $250,000 of his money to a Wilmington nonprofit if he wins the 7th Congressional District race in 2010
and serves more than six years in Congress.

Breazeale says he’s trying to build trust with voters skeptical of politicians who have broken their word on term limits.

The money would go to Kids Voting, which urges civic participation in children.

Breazeale lost two years ago to Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre.
