McAuliffe Celebrates Birthday By Raising Money

Tim Craig

Terry McAuliffe, a Democratic candidate for governor, turns 52 today.

To celebrate, McAuliffe will be hosting a "Birthday Bash" fundraiser Tuesday night at the Westin Arlington Gateway. Tickets range from $52 for "young professionals" to $5,200 for a host sponsor.

Virginia politicians have been mixing birthdays and fundraisers for years. In September, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Brian Moran celebrated his 49th birthday by hosting a fundraiser.

Last year, Sen. R. Creigh Deeds, also a candidate for the nomination, held a $100 a plate fundraiser to celebrate his 50th birthday. Deeds turned 51 last month.

There will also likely be plenty of GOP money raised around June 15. Both Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, the Republican nominee for governor, and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R), who is running for reelection, celebrate their birthdays on that day. Bolling will be turning 52 while McDonnell will be turning 55.
