Kaine Has $1 Million to Turn Assembly Blue
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) will report today his political action committee, Moving Virginia Forward, has about $1 million in the bank to help Democratic state legislative candidates running in Virginia's Nov. 6 election.
The campaign filing reports, which candidates and political action committees must file today, come as both parties are raising and spending record amounts of money. Democrats think they are well-positioned to win the four seats needed to regain control of the state Senate and some of the 11 needed to win a majority in the House of Delegates.
Kaine raised about $1 million between July 1 and Sept. 30 for his PAC. During that period, Kaine distributed more than a half-million dollars to Democratic candidates, most of it in September. In the final three weeks of the campaign, Kaine could dump tens of thousands of dollars into individual races, putting several GOP incumbents on the defensive.
A complete story candidates' finance reports will appear in tomorrow's Washington Post.
