The last comprehensive data we received regarding Virginia candidates’ campaign finances took us from April 1 through June 8, which was twelve days before the primaries on June 20. Since then, VPAP has reported large contributions, but we haven’t gotten full reports on all the candidates’ fundraising and expenditures for the period June 9-June 30. Fortunately, as of 6 pm today, those numbers  (“for all candidates and committees registered with the Virginia Department of Elections”) will finally start coming available on VPAP.  Of course, now that the primaries are over, the focus now has shifted to how Democratic and Republican nominees’ financial situations look as they head into the general elections.  With that in mind, I’m particularly interested in candidates’ fundraising for key, competitive races (and a few that are on the edge of being competitive) that will determine control of the State Senate and House of Delegates, including the following:

State Senate

  • SD16 (part of Henrico County): Democratic Del. Schuyler VanValkenburg(receipts $85k from 6/9 to 6/30; ending balance $503k) vs. Republican Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant (receipts $120k from 6/9 to 6/30; ending balance $734k)
