Raising funds like a candidate
Former Va. Sen. George Allen (R) has raised quite a bit of money for a man who has yet announce he is running again, the Virginia Politics blog reports.
According to records filed with the Federal Election Commission, Allen's political action committee Good Government for America collected $314,595 from April 1 to June 30. After spending $86,458 during the period, the committee ended the period with $252,074 in the bank.
Reporter Rosalind Helderman tells us that the number is especially striking since donors to federal committees face a $5,000 limit on the size of their donations. Donors to state committees, which also faced reporting deadlines this week, give as much as they'd like.
