Fourth quarter 2018 fundraising numbers for Virginia candidates are due by tomorrow, January 15. As they come in, I’ll use this post to keep track of where various candidates are at. We’ll start with James Walkinshaw (D) for Braddock District Supervisor – see his press release, which I just received – and Sally Hudson (D) for Delegate, who released her 4Q18 campaign finance information out on January 7, below.

WALKINSHAW FOR BRADDOCK SUPERVISOR RAISES $38,394 IN 4TH QUARTER

258 Contributions in Just 7 Weeks Shows Strong Grassroots Support

James Walkinshaw, Democratic Candidate for Braddock District Supervisor, announced today that his campaign raised $38,397.83 in the 4th quarter of 2018, after launching on November 10, 2018. The campaign has $30,833.45 on hand. Walkinshaw’s strong fundraising leaves him well-positioned to win in 2019 and flip the Braddock District from red to blue.  

“I’m incredibly grateful to the hundreds who contributed to our campaign,” said Walkinshaw. “Clearly there is real excitement about our progressive agenda to invest in our world-class schools, provide transportation choices, and put our county government on a path to being carbon neutral. I look forward to spending 2019 continuing to listen to the people of Braddock District and finding ways we can work together to make our wonderful community even better.”

Walkinshaw’s fundraising success comes after a December 16 kickoff event attended by more than 150 supporters and announcing endorsements from Gerry Connolly, Chairman Sharon Bulova, Braddock School Board Member Megan McLaughlin, Supervisor Jeff Mckay, At-Large School Board Member Ilryong Moon, Sheriff Stacey Kincaid, and the Fairfax County Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics (IAFF Local 2068)

From State Sen. Scott Surovell:

Senator Scott Surovell Raises Over $100,000 in Second Half of 2018

Surovell raises $107,114 from 346 donors between July 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018 

Mt. Vernon, VA— Today, the campaign of Senator Scott Surovell filed its 2018 second half fundraising report. Surovell announced $107,114 raised over that period and $178,196 on hand. Surovell raised more than all but one other senator in the Senate Democratic Caucus during the first half of 2018. Surovell collected contributions from 346 separate donors to support his re-election.

All 140 seats in the General Assembly are up for re-election in 2019 and fundraising is an important aspect of identifying early electoral leaders. The substantial fundraising will allow Surovell to communicate with constituents, activate voters, and contribute to other campaigns.

Surovell said he is pleased with his fundraising total and looks forward to having the resources he will need in 2019. “Our community has always been very generous toward my reelection campaign and I am deeply humbled by the support. Elections cost money. The last campaign for the 36th Senate District cost nearly $750,000. We still have a long way to go but I’m glad my supporters were able to put us in a strong position,” Surovell said.

This year, many observers expect the Senate to be closely contested. Currently Republicans control the chamber by one vote.  In November, 2019, Surovell’s colleagues selected him to serve as Senate Minority Whip along with Senator Janet Howell. 

From the Alicia Plerhoples for Fairfax County School Board (Dranesville District) campaign:

Plerhoples raises $27,291 in First Filed Campaign Finance Report

Alicia Plerhoples seeks to succeed Janie Strauss on the Fairfax County School Board, Dranesville District 

January 13, 2019 (McLean, VA) – School Board Candidate Alicia Plerhoples filed her first campaign finance report, raising $27,291 in the fourth quarter of 2018. Alicia announced her candidacy for the Fairfax County School Board, Dranesville District on November 11, 2018. She seeks to succeed retiring School Board Member Janie Strauss. The campaign has $25,536 on hand.

Plerhoples had two campaign kick-off events, one in McLean and one in Herndon, to demonstrate Plerhoples’ desire to engage the varying educational needs of the Dranesville District. Raising such a large amount for a school board seat is proof of Plerhoples’ widespread support, particularly from grassroots groups like Virginia Democracy Forward, which co-hosted the McLean campaign kick-off and has endorsed Plerhoples. Lori Boerner, the founder of VADF, states “We were all thrilled when Alicia decided to run for the school board. It makes sense – she’s a professor and has young kids in public school. She has been an activist with VADF from the start. She shares our values on public education and will ensure our schools educate and enrich all children equitably to reach their full potential.”  

 

Democrat Josh King Outraises GOP Incumbent Sheriff $6k to ZERO
Iraq Vet is the first Democrat to run for the office in 16 years
DUMFRIES, Va. — Iraq War veteran and Deputy Sheriff Josh King of Dumfries, the first Democrat to run for Prince William County Sheriff in 16 years, has outraised Republican incumbent Sheriff Glen Hill $6,000 to zero.
Including in-kind contributions, King raised $6,056.58 in the last reporting period. Two-thirds of the contributions were for $50 or less, while 83 percent of the contributions were for $100 or less.
“I am deeply grateful for this outpouring of grassroots support, which will enable me to run a grassroots-powered campaign,” said King. “In these divisive times, we need a Sheriff who will train a new generation of diverse law enforcement officers to build public trust in our communities. As Sheriff, I will end the Corey Stewart-Glen Hill 287(g) program that targets Latinx families and deputizes local law enforcement officers to act as agents of ICE. 287(g) is the Jim Crow of the new millennium. With Corey Stewart gone, we can move Prince William forward instead of back.”
“We are so thankful to all of our supporters for the energy they have brought to our campaign,” said Gregory Pratt, King’s finance director. “Every single dollar counts in a sheriff’s race, and we are proud that such a high percentage of our total comes from grassroots support. Contributions of even $3, $4 or $5 add up fast and will help bring a new sheriff to town.”
King, who was recently endorsed by the veterans group VoteVets, will hold his campaign kick-off this Sun. Jan. 20 at 4 p.m. at the home of Oliver and Miatta Reid, 9616 Riverdale Pl, in Manassas. There is a suggested donation of $25. For more information, contact Gregory Pratt at 207-907-5183 or email gregory@king2019.com.

Kathleen Murphy, Del. Mark Sickles, Sen. Barabara Favola, Sen. Dave Marsden, and Sen. Adam Ebbin (D-Alexandria).

Biberaj Reports Nearly $50,000 In Contributions For Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Campaign

Aldie, VA – Attorney Buta Biberaj filed her first campaign finance filing this week and reported $49,465 in campaign contributions. Ms. Biberaj, a first-time candidate, is running for Commonwealth’s Attorney in Loudoun County and is currently the only Democrat in the race.

For 25 years, Ms. Biberaj has been an attorney in Loudoun County, served 11 years as a substitute judge and was the co-founder of the Street Law Program (a program focused on mentoring at-risk students at the Douglas School in Leesburg about their civil and criminal legal rights). “My decision to run is in response to calls from members of the community for someone to stand up and fight for the citizens of Loudoun County. The community deserves a Commonwealth’s Attorney who will fight for severe consequences for violent crimes, while also pursuing policies that stem our school to prison pipeline and work to improve our justice system through innovation and collaboration with community stakeholders,” stated Ms. Biberaj.

Ms. Biberaj lives in Aldie and has been a resident of Loudoun County since 1996.  She is a graduate of George Mason School of Law and is licensed to practice in Maryland, New York and Virginia.  Additionally, she is a member of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States.  Since 1993, she has maintained her legal practice in Leesburg. If elected, she would be the first woman ever elected Commonwealth’s Attorney in Loudoun County. Ms. Biberaj went on to state, “We are grateful for the initial support we have received to get this campaign off the ground and look forward to sharing our message of reform, community engagement and advocacy with residents across Loudoun County during the course of this Election.  Our ultimate goal is to change the culture of the office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney from one of unjust prosecution to appropriate, measured justice.”
