The key with this race is not taking our pedals off the metal, not getting complacent or overconfident, and working hard to CRUSH whichever nutjob (Freaky Nick Freitas, neo-Confederate Corey Stewart or theocratic bigot Ewwww Jackson) the Virginia GOP nominates on June 12 to face Tim Kaine. Keep in mind that the bigger Kaine wins, the better chance we have of picking up VA-10, VA-02, VA-07, VA-05, etc.
Senator Tim Kaine Has More Than $10.5 Million on Hand Entering 2018 Senate Campaign’s General Election
Kaine Raised More Than $1.1 Million in Seven-Week Pre-Primary Period, Has Raised More Than $17 Million This Cycle
Senator Tim Kaine has more than $10.5 million cash on hand for his re-election campaign in Virginia after raising more than $1.1 million in the seven-week pre-primary reporting period. This period, 75 percent of Kaine’s donors were from the Commonwealth of Virginia, and he brought in more than $192,000 online, through a total of 5,877 individual online contributions. The average online contribution was $33. Kaine has raised more than $17 million this cycle.
Kaine is in a strong position for a general election as Republicans prepare to choose their nominee in a June 12 primary. While Republicans have spent the past few months spending their resources attacking each other and appealing to their far-right base, Kaine has been focused on building a strong organization — including field efforts in targeted congressional districts and swing counties — and spending time in every corner of the Commonwealth building grassroots support for his campaign to make Virginia work for all.
