Today’s the deadline to for Virginia financial reports from the second half of 2016, so fundraising numbers are starting to come in. Here’s a press release from Lt. Gov.  Ralph Northam I just received. Looking forward to reports for LG and AG candidates as well…

P.S. Note that Tom Perriello just entered the race for Governor, so of course he won’t have a report for 2Q16. Also, Susan Platt won’t have a report, since she hasn’t officially announced for Lt. Governor yet.

Northam Bests Gillespie, Raises Over $1.64 million In Second Half Of 2016

Northam now has $2.46 million cash on hand from nearly 33,000 individual contributions, with 92% being under $100

Richmond, VA – Today, the Northam for Governor campaign announced it raised more than  $1.64 million in its final financial report for 2016. Northam has over $2.46 million cash on hand as of the December 31st reporting deadline.  For the cycle, the Northam campaign has raised $3.9 million.

The campaign has a vast grassroots network with nearly 33,000 contributions, with 92% of all contributions being $100 or less.

In comparison, Ed Gillespie announced he had only 400 donors make a contribution of $100 or less. Corey Stewart responded by announcing he had 800 donors who had made similar contributions.

Northam’s $2.46 million cash on hand is better at this point in the election cycle than any candidate in the last two elections.

“The campaign is proud of the broad support from every corner of the Commonwealth,” said campaign manager Brad Komar. “Dr. Northam has built an impressive coalition based on his platform to bring economic opportunity to everyone no matter where they live. Virginians know he will be a brick wall against any attempts to discriminate against fellow Virginians or place new restrictions on women’s health care.”

  • Virginia GOP Attorney General candidate reports pathetically low fundraising in 2Q16. Less than $300k in 6 months after Rob Bell drops out? That’s pitiful…

    “I am excited to announce that in the last fundraising period we raised $269,842 bringing our 2016 total to a record-setting $701,804.”

    Also note that he didn’t include a Cash on Hand number? Probably a sign it’s not a good number, perhaps that he’s burning through cash on stupid stuff….

  • In stark contrast:

    In the last year, Attorney General Herring has been hard at work securing the largest environmental settlement in Virginia history, the largest multi-state consumer settlement ever led by Virginia, and the largest non-healthcare recovery under the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayer Act, in addition to his continuing work on the heroin/opioid crisis, sexual and domestic violence issues, and more.

    During 2016, Herring also raised more than $1 million to support his re-election, including $640,364 in the second half of the year. He now has more than $1 million cash on hand and is in a strong position to share with Virginians his vision for the office and why they should allow him to serve second term.

    Relevant numbers from today’s filings with the State Board of Election include:

    Amount Raised in 2016: $1,084,100

    Amount Raised from July 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016: $640,364

    COH as of Dec 31, 2016: $1,058,261
