Saslaw, Democrats Raise Money

Tim Craig

Senate Democrats in Richmond are celebrating their new majority by raising as much money as they can before the legislative session starts tomorrow.

Earlier today, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) headlined a fundraiser for the Senate Democratic Caucus at the Colony Club in downtown Richmond. At the event, about 100 lobbyists and business leaders schmoozed with Kaine and the new Democratic committee chairmen.

"When you got a majority, you get a lot more people at these things," Senate Majority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) quipped at one point, according to someone who attended.

Saslaw also held a seperate fundraiser Monday night that featured Sen. James Webb (D).

State law prohibits Kaine or legislators from raising money during the legislative session.
