The other day, I posted that Republican gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin spent $861 per raw vote received on the first ballot at the VA GOP’s “unassembled convention” and $2,152 per weighted vote. How does that compare to Democratic statewide candidates’ money spent per vote received?  See below for some graphics, with data  from VPAP through May 27. A few highlights include:

  • Among Democratic statewide candidates during the primary campaign cycle, the highest amounts of money spent per vote received were by Jennifer McClellan ($46.33/vote) and Jennifer Carroll Foy ($45.97/vote), then Terry McAuliffe ($31.40/vote), and Mark Levine ($24.78/vote).
  • Among Democratic Lt. Governor candidates, the highest $/vote was by Mark Levine ($24.78/vote), followed by Andria McClellan ($16.61/vote), Sam Rasoul ($14.96/vote) and Xavier Warren ($13.10/vote).
  • Among Democratic Lt. Governor candidates, the *lowest* $/vote were by Hala Ayala ($5.45/vote) and  Sean Perryman ($9.13/vote).
  • Among Democratic AG candidates, Mark Herring spent $10.51/vote and Jay Jones spent $8.54/vote.
