Shannon Files Petitions; Raises $270,000

Anita Kumar

Del. Stephen C. Shannon, the sole Democrat in the race for attorney general, filed the necessary petitions today to get his name on the ballot.

Shannon of Fairfax, who was forbidden by law from raising money during the 45-day legislative session this year, received more than $270,000 in the first three months of 2009. He has $900,000 cash on hand.

Shannon submitted 14,267 signatures. The state requires candidates to submit at least 10,000 signatures, including those of least 400 registered voters in each of Virginia's 11 congressional districts.

Three Republicans seek the nomination for attorney general: Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax); John Brownlee, a former federal prosecutor; and David M. Foster, the former chairman of the Arlington County School Board.
