Virginia candidates’ fundraising numbers for the first quarter of 2015 are due today, and they’re starting to trickle in. According to VPAP: “By 6 p.m. this evening, VPAP will post reports from General Assembly candidates and major state party/caucus committees that were received by COB at the State Department of Elections. Candidates and PACs have until midnight to file their reports. VPAP will update its listing early Thursday morning.” Should be interesting. Anyway, here’s what I’ve heard so far.
Gov. McAuliffe: His “Common Good VA” PAC raised $758,452, ending with $334,091 cash on hand.
LG Ralph Northam: His “Stronger Together” PAC raised $44k and ended with $83,223 cash on hand.
