Terry McAuliffe Breaks Fundraising Record With $7.5M Haul in Latest Filing Period, Receives Support from More Than 14,000 Donors in Just Over One Month, Has $9M Cash-on-Hand

Terry for Virginia Continues to Build Massive Grassroots Fundraising Army, With More Than 33,000 Donors and 60,000 Contributions to Date, Support from All 133 of Virginia’s Cities and Counties

More Than 95% of Donations in Latest Period Were Under $100

Trump-Endorsed Glenn Youngkin Has Already Spent $12M+ Of His Own Money & Promised to Spend Up To $75 Million to Buy VA Governor’s Office 

MCLEAN, VA – Terry McAuliffe raised $7.5 million in the latest filing period and has raised more than $20.4 million to date, breaking fundraising records for a Virginia gubernatorial candidate at this point in the cycle. He currently has over $9 million cash-on-hand. In addition to this massive fundraising haul, Terry for Virginia continues to build an unmatched grassroots army of supporters. More than 14,000 donors contributed to Terry for Virginia in just over one month in the latest filing period when Terry decisively won the Democratic nomination. The campaign has received more than 60,000 contributions from more than 33,000 donors to date, including support from all of Virginia’s 133 cities and counties. In the latest period, more than 95% of donations to Terry for Virginia were under $100.

This unmatched grassroots strength draws a stark contrast with Trump-endorsed Glenn Youngkin’s promise to spend $75 million of his own money to further his and Donald Trump’s right-wing agenda. In recent weeks, Youngkin has made clear he is trying to hide his out-of-step agenda from Virginia voters. Just last week, a shocking video was released showing Youngkin admitting he is hiding his true plans to “go on offense” to ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood from voters. This week, Youngkin broke with a 36-year Virginia tradition and refused to participate in the Virginia Bar Association debate that was scheduled for July 24, and on Wednesday he was caught on camera running away from a reporter and refusing to answer questions.

“While Glenn Youngkin is trying to buy the governor’s office to enact his and Donald Trump’s out-of-step agenda, I can promise Virginians: I am running for governor for you. Just as I did before, as governor I will get up every single day fighting to build a stronger Commonwealth. That means creating good paying jobs, making health care more affordable, and giving every Virginia child a world-class education,” said Terry McAuliffe. “I am so proud to have tens of thousands of grassroots supporters who share our vision of keeping Virginia the best state for business and making sure our Commonwealth remains open and welcoming to all.”

Since launching his campaign, Terry has released 17 detailed plans to strengthen Virginia’s education system and dramatically increase teacher pay, help secure Virginia’s economic recovery from COVID-19, reform our criminal justice system, ensure Virginians have access to regular nutritious meals, address the broken, predatory system of prescription drug pricing, confront the gun violence epidemic, make Virginia the best state in the nation for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Health Care (STEM-H) and computer science education, tackle the housing crisis in the Commonwealth and invest in Virginia’s workforce in the post-COVID economy, ensure Virginians have access to high-quality, affordable health care, tackle climate change and secure Virginia’s clean energy future by 2035, lift up Black Virginians as the Commonwealth rebuilds from the COVID-19 pandemic, further advance LGBTQ+ rights, create a flourishing rural economy, support entrepreneurial ecosystems and tackle rising costs and meet the health care needs and make higher education more affordable.

SPEAKER EILEEN FILLER-CORN ANNOUNCES RECORD-BREAKING SECOND QUARTER FUNDRAISING
Speaker reports over $2,140,000 cash on hand
RICHMOND, VA — Virginia Speaker of the House Eileen Filler-Corn today reported raising an additional $670,000, bringing the second quarter fundraising total to nearly $950,000, a historic number that surpasses that of any speaker before her at this point in an election year. This brings the speaker’s overall 2021 fundraising to more than $1,534,000, with over $2,140,000 cash on hand, and continues her record-breaking streak from last quarter in the midst of a pivotal election cycle.

Speaker Filler-Corn is working to maintain and expand the Democratic majority, contributing $870,000 in support of Democratic campaigns for the House of Delegates so far this year. This is in addition to the strong financial showing by the House Democratic Caucus as well as Democratic House members and candidates throughout Virginia.

“The Democratic majority led by Speaker Filler-Corn has delivered on the agenda they campaigned on two years ago,” said Tyler Javonillo, a campaign spokesman for Speaker Filler-Corn. “The momentum continues to be on our side, and we’re heading into the fall with full steam ahead. Voters are clearly energized to re-elect a Democratic majority and work with them to build a better Virginia.”
On Tuesday, CNBC announced that Virginia earned back-to-back titles in its ranking as top state for business, a testament to the Democratic Majority’s efforts to support small businesses while creating an open, welcoming environment for workers.
This past session, the General Assembly passed pivotal legislation increasing access to quality, affordable to health care; expanding school funding and teacher pay; making Virginia a national leader in ballot access; implementing common-sense gun violence prevention; reforming our criminal justice system; and protecting workers’ rights, women’s rights, and LGBTQ+ rights, among many other significant accomplishments.
