Forgit Receives Financial Support

Anita Kumar

All Democratic members of the Virginia congressional delegation have pledged or given money to Philip Forgit, the Democratic candidate for U.S. House in Tuesday's election.

That includes:

U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher: $2,500
U.S. Rep. Jim Moran: $5,000
U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott: $2,300

Former governor Mark R. Warner, who is running for U.S. Senate, gave $5,000 and U.S. Sen. Jim Webb gave $1,000.

Forgit is running against Del. Robert Wittman (R-Westmoreland) for the race to fill Virginia's 1st congressional district seat held by late representative Jo Ann Davis (R), who died in October.

Voters will pick a replacement for Davis Tuesday. The district, which includes parts of Prince William and Fauquier counties, leans Republican.

pretty cheap for big time congressmen

It's a heavily Republican district - the congressmen aren't being cheap they're being realistic and not throwing money away on a Democratic candidate that most likely won't win.
