WASHINGTON — The North Carolina Senate race between Republican Elizabeth Dole and Democrat Erskine Bowles to succeed protectionist GOP Sen. Jesse Helms is a match of textile credentials. Textile-industry giving is almost divided between the candidates, with some companies hedging their bets and giving to both. Fashion firms outside textiles have also placed money in the Dole-Bowles face-off, including Guess, Revlon Inc. and Estée Lauder. Industry contributions listed reflect donations made by company officials in amounts ranging from $250 to the $2,000 limit. So far, Dole has amassed a $12 million war chest and Bowles has raised $7.5 million, making the race one of the most expensive this election, according to the Federal Election Commission.

‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.
