Comstock Raises $120,000
Barbara Comstock, who is running for a House of Delegates seat in Fairfax County in November, has raised $120,000 since mid-January -- a substantial amount of money for a non-incumbent.
Comstock, running against Democratic Del. Margaret G. Vanderhye, received donations from more than 300 people.
"We are particularly pleased with the support that Barbara's campaign has received financially from her many friends, neighbors, colleagues and supporters,'' said John Hishta, a campaign spokesman. "We have gone beyond our best hopes for this early show of support. We understand that in order to be successful this fall we will need to have the necessary financial resources in order to get our message out."
Comstock worked on Capitol Hill for Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) and the Government Reform Committee, ran opposition research for the Republican National Committee and helped Scooter Libby's legal team in his criminal case. Last year, she worked on Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and is now a lobbyist in the District.
