Kaine Takes in $261,000

Tim Craig

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's political action committee raised $261,000 from 36 individuals or entities from July 1 to September 30, according to recently released campaign finance reports.

The PAC, Moving Virginia Forward, spent $286,000 during the quarter and now has $154,000 in the bank.

As was the case in the first half of the year, Kaine raised very little money from small donors, instead relying on those who can afford to write large checks. Kaine received three $500 contributions, but all of his other reportable donors gave at least $2,000. Kaine also received $375 from donors who do not have to be identified in the report because they gave less than $100.

One man, businessman R.J. Kirk, donated $100,000 to the PAC last month.

The bulk of Kaine's political spending went toward staff salaries and the costs associated with attending the Democratic National Convention in Denver. But the PAC also bought a $3,500 gift from the US Department of the Treasury on Sept. 25, and it shelled out $20,500 to Kaine's pollster on Sept. 23.

The smallest expenditure occurred on Sept. 10, when someone bought $2.32 in food or drink from Arbys.
